2023 Legislative Agenda & Policy Guide

Capital Region Improvement Support Package

In recognition of the critical importance that a thriving downtown in our capital city means to the region and the state, the Capital Region Improvement Support package outlines funding requests to the Governor and State Legislature for projects and services that will combine to provide a much-needed shot-in-the-arm to efforts to revitalize the capital region.  Support for this package is necessary for the anticipated growth coming to our region in the next few years.

We have spent several months gathering feedback from our regional partners to make sure we are providing a unified voice on the priorities that are important to our region. This package focuses on on-going state aid as well as one-time investments focused on the following areas:

  • Economic Development & Community Revitalization
  • Education, Skills Training, & Workforce Development
  • Water & Electric Infrastructure Investment
  • Roads, Transportation, & Connectivity Infrastructure
  • Social Services
  • Housing
