This session featured Robin Zukoski, Government Relations Coordinator at Columbia Legal Services. Her lobbying efforts focus primarily on public benefits. She has worked on GA-U and Disability Lifeline issues for more than 20 years.
This session provided an overview of the Housing and Essential Needs program. Many people across the state have been served by this important program. But with another revenue shortfall looming over the 2013 legislative session, the program could again be targeted for cuts. Additionally, changes are needed to the program to make sure it works with the upcoming implementation of the Affordable Care Act. We also talked about advocacy strategies for next year.
