    CURRENT LEGISLATIVE TOPICS

    FEDERAL 

    • Warren Davidson's was our guest at the July meeting.  Warren shared that the current priority is Health Care.  The current options are a single payer system or free market.  He shared that a single payer system is no sustainable.  He expects tax reform to move at a slower pace than healthcare.  One plan is to end the global profits tax.   Other topics discussed were the Labor Market and adding work requirements to assistance programs.   This would be for able bodied individuals.   Regarding the budget, the mandatory spending continues to grow - mandatory spending includes social security, medicare, medicaid, etc.
