As a reminder, this year’s Call to Action continues the conversation with talent attraction and retention, focusing mainly on housing development, availability and affordability of childcare and eldercare, incumbent worker training options, employability of people with disabilities, and eliminating worker shortages.

New this Week:

SB-61 has had significant amendments made to the original document and is now a bill that 1si does not fully support; it has been moved to the bills that 1si is monitoring.
