U.S. Chamber of Commerce vice president of congressional and public affairs Ron Eidshaug will provide an update on policy and the political landscape in Washington, DC at the NOCLA (North Orange County Legislative Alliance) meeting on August 6, touching on:
- factors that have led to stalemate in Congress, including issues such as redistricting, increasingly partisan districts, and the lack of trust among the White House, House and Senate;
- bills where agreement has been reached, although with great difficulty;
- the sometimes dim prospects for key bills to be passed before the end of 2014;
- the impending election;
- why it is important that the business community not give into frustration with Congress, and continue to press their members for action; and
- a look to down-the-road issues, such as entitlements, that are increasingly limiting the ability of Congress to affect change.
Orange County Water District (OCWD) Board Member and Fullerton City Councilwoman Jan Flory and OCWD General Manager Mike Markus will provide an update on threats to OC’s groundwater basin, explain how OCWD is trying to work with businesses, community groups and regulators to address these threats moving forward, and answer any questions.
