Carol Taylor, Legislative Chairperson
We must find the time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives." Words spoken by John F. Kennedy. As we head into Thanksgiving, it's a natural time to reflect on what we are thankful for, but even better would be an encouraging thank you to those in our industry who have shared their wisdom (David L), taught us a new way (Bill H), who make us laugh (Ann B), who help with solving claim issues (Barbara C and Laurie A), who perpetually herd cats (David S), who inspire us to be better (Bill K), or is that sounding board we need (too many to list!). May we all take that moment to share our thanks to each other.
Mark your calendars and plan to attend the FAHU Day on the Hill, in Tallahassee, January 29th and 30th! While bills are slowly being dropped for the upcoming State Legislature, we're sure more are to come. Join your colleagues and let's make our voices heard.
The Federal attention has turned to tax reform for the most part, however, several bills have started gaining some traction in both houses. Recently re-released are the "40 Hours is Full-Time" bill and an employer reporting simplification bill. NAHU has issued Operation Shout's on both of these, which are quick for you to complete online to make your voice heard. Don't forget that Capitol Conference is in Washington, DC on February 26 - 28, 2018!
