Fate of Health Care Subsidy May
Soon be in Supreme Court's Hands

By Lisa Soronen, Director, State and Local Legal Center

Less surprisingly, perhaps, the D.C. Circuit and the Fourth Circuit disagreed, making Supreme Court review almost inevitable.

The Council of State Governments, in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Defense, launched a $3.2 million Overseas Voting Initiative in late 2013 to improve the U.S. overseas voting process. CSG is working to develop policy solutions to ensure that overseas voters have the tools to vote while serving their nation abroad. That effort will be the subject of a workshop 9-11 a.m. Monday, Aug. 11, during the CSG National and CSG West Annual Conference.


Bill Summary: The Workforce
Innovation and Opportunity Act

Shrinking the skills gap and placing workers in good-paying jobs is the cornerstone of CSG's 2014 "State Pathways to Prosperity" initiative, and this legislation is an important step. This memorandum will provide an overview of WIOA and the key changes for states.
