Policy Collision: Local Officials & Governors At Odds

Mar 11, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

The discussion will center on how local officials have navigated conflicting views their governors/other state officials on major policy issues, including public health policies (e.g., mask mandates), police funding, election results & processes, climate change initiatives, and disbursements federal funding. The audience will gain insight into how these tensions play out both publicly (in the courtroom) and behind closed doors. The panelists will also discuss how these issues get resolved and how the people who are hurt the most are residents.
