Thank You for Attending the 2018 State Legislative Summit & Capital Region Legislator's Reception
Yesterday, we held our annual State Legislative Summit at the Cal Chamber. We began the day with a panel discussion on housing in our region, moderated by AssemblymemberJim Cooper, where we heard from Kevin Carson, of The New Home Company, Steven Daues, Mercy Housing, Liam Dillon, LA Times, Ryan Loofbourrow, Sacramento Steps Forward, and Nikky Mohanna, Mohanna Development Company. Following the panel, we spent a few minutes talking with Dr. Jeffrey Michael, University of the Pacific, about the economics of housing and what impact the new federal tax bill may have on our housing market. For our luncheon speakers, we heard from Janet Napolitano, President of the University of California as well as California Lieutenant Governor CandidateEleni Kounalakis.THANK YOU to all of our panelists and speakers for joining us.
Our goal for the day was to speak with a collective voice for common-sense, business-friendly policies that advance the Capital Region. By that metric, State Legislative Summit 2018 was a huge success. All told, we sent over 120 participants to more than 60 meetings with legislators, staff, and administration personnel.
