MUCA Member Update
MUCA End of Session Recap
Unbelievable! For the second year in a row, the Legislature adjourned without completing major portions of its work. No transportation package and no bonding bill. The few items that did get passed included some tax relief, funding for the construction career pathways, and racial equity programs.
