APPA Academy to offer three pre-Legislative Rally seminars in 2014
Originally published December 6, 2013
The APPA Academy will hold three pre-Legislative Rally seminars on March 10:
• Overview of the Federal Budget: Deficits, Debt, Appropriations, and Taxes;
• Long-Term Implications of Greater Use of Natural Gas for Electric Generation; and
• The Public Power Governance Workshop – Sustaining Public Power’s Value Through Effective Governance.
Participants in "Overview of the Federal Budget: Deficits, Debt, Appropriations, and Taxes" will learn how the federal budget process works and hear how budgets are created and how they affect federal discretionary spending, entitlement programs and tax policy. The seminar will review recent budget legislation and provide insight from policymakers on where Washington is headed and what it means for public power.
In "Long-Term Implications of Greater Use of Natural Gas for Electric Generation," attendees will hear about the possible implications of switching to natural gas. They will also learn about the policies that Congress and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) are exploring to promote better coordination between the electricity and natural gas industries to ensure electric reliability is maintained during this transformational period.
Participants in the "Public Power Governance Workshop" will spend the day learning about the duties, responsibilities, and processes that make an effective governance team. Dr. Jeff Tarbert, executive consultant for APPA, will instruct the workshop.
