Leadership Austin hosts state and local control panel

Friday, January 20, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Next Tuesday, Leadership Austin is hosting a panel at its Engage Breakfast event at the Palmer Events Center. The city’s Brie L. Franco, Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Robert Henneke and Dick Lavine of the Center for Public Policy Priorities will discuss points of contention between state and local officials that affect Texans on a daily basis. The event costs $25 to attend and includes breakfast and a bonus chat with the panelists — for the true wonks among us. State versus local control was the theme we tackled in the 2016 City Summit, which you can relive here.
