The board of directors received briefings on a wide range of issues during the two-day meeting, including economic development legislation, funds that will be allocated from state Cap-and-Trade funds, the status of the Water Bond, affordable housing strategies, massage therapy regulation legislation and medical marijuana regulation legislation.
