ADVISORY: State and Local Leaders Summit

Washington, D.C. — With the passage of the Biden administration’s historic economic legislation, governors and mayors have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform their economies in the months and years ahead.

The ultimate impact of these programs will be determined largely by how state and local elected officials implement them in communities around the country.
