While the number of states exploring transportation funding options in 2016 was down from 2015’s record pace, 2017 could see significant activity. Several states had special task forces in place in 2016 to discuss funding options, while others have targeted 2017 as the year for action or are completing unfinished business from years past. During this annual CSG eCademy webinar, we’ll hear from transportation experts and statehouse and transportation beat reporters about what could lie ahead in 2017 legislative sessions around the country.

Among the many concerns currently facing America’s health care system, few are more significant, both medically and fiscally, than long-term care, or LTC. With the continuing rise in the population of U.S. citizens 65 and older—statistically, the demographic most in need of LTC—states need to begin preparing for the growing pressures that will be placed on their budgets as a result of the nation’s aging population. Presently, LTC costs are unaffordable for large segments of the population, forcing many LTC recipients to instead rely on other sources for support, primarily Medicaid and unpaid caregiving from friends and family. This webinar will address the problems LTC poses for states, highlight state and federal legislative efforts to stem rising LTC costs, and include a presentation about LTC challenges and potential solutions in Virginia.

Civic education stands at the core of what it takes to equip citizens with the knowledge and willingness to become community, state, national and international leaders and effectively engage in our democracy. Without such civic fundamentals, the youth of today may not vote or run for public office tomorrow, and the future participation of citizens in America’s grand democratic experiment is at risk. This eCademy will host state leaders and experts in civics education policy in a conversation on the role of civics in our democratic republic.

Every four years, the American Society of Civil Engineers releases the Report Card for America’s Infrastructure, which details the condition and performance of 16 categories of infrastructure and assigns a letter grade to each. Each infrastructure category is evaluated on the basis of capacity, condition, funding, future need, operation and maintenance, public safety, resilience, and innovation. During this webinar, ASCE officials will talk about what the 2017 report says and the resources available to policymakers who may want to explore their states’ infrastructure needs as they consider funding and policy options this year.

Public pension reform is at the forefront of many state policymakers’ agendas for 2017. Participants in this webinar will hear a summary of legal issues around public employee pension reform in layman’s terms with a focus on constitutional concerns. We will cover which reform provisions have been shot down by the courts, which provisions have held up to challenges and any lessons a state leader can take away from the totality of those rulings.
