In this episode, Ryan and Brett get together to talk the 2024 Legislative Session now that it’s just over halfway over. They discuss some environmental bills making their way through the process including the ratification of the Statewide Stormwater Rule (HB 7053/SB 7040); a mitigation and water quality improvement bill (HB 1073/SB 1532, by Truenow/Brodeur); and of course, the budget.  If you’re curious about the budget process and why your favorite project is successful, or doomed to failure, you’ll want to check this episode out.
