Save the Date – 2016 NYSHFA/NYSCAL Legislative Visitation Day

Esq. Stephen B. Hanse in Legislative

NYSHFA will be holding a Legislative Visitation Day on Monday, February 29th in Albany to meet with key elected officials and policymakers regarding issues and concerns related to the 2016-2017 Executive Budget. Governor Cuomo is presenting his Executive Budget on Wednesday, January 13th.

We will start the day on February 29th at 8:30 a.m. in the Legislative Office Building (Room 211/211A) with a light breakfast and then divide into groups for meetings with legislators and policymakers.  All meetings will be arranged by NYSHFA/NYSCAL and we will e-mail concise issue briefs and meeting schedules to each participant prior to their arrival in Albany. NYSHFA/NYSCAL will also hold a conference call approximately one week prior to our Albany visitation day to review discussion issues and meeting logistics.

In addition, we will be hosting a reception for an elected official at the Renaissance Albany Hotel the evening before our Legislative Visitation Day on Sunday, February 28th (2/28/16) – details to follow.
