The membership meeting this Thursday 17th at Mason Government Center has a very intriguing topic -- the hazards, help, and health impacts of salting our roads in winter conditions. You gotta see what Will Isenberg (from Va. Dept. of Environmental Quality in Richmond) shows in his presentation. Wow, who would have thought so much effort and technology is involved.
(Recall we submitted to our Fairfax Delegation and Supervisors our Legislative Issue 19C02 Roadway Salt and Fertilizer.)
The General Assembly is in full swing and the Senate has already passed (26 - 14) a significant issue that the Federation last month sent them a Resolution on - Ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
So, in the vein of "how are our Issues doing in Richmond?", Committee Chairs will report on the status of our 2019 Federation Legislative Issues that you approved last November. Come hear the news that we are heard and may have some Issues successfully pass both chambers.
The meeting agenda can be opened from here and the minutes for approval vote from the December meeting are here.
As always, Federation meetings are open to the public - bring an interested neighbor or another officer in your association.
