A head start on the 2013 session
Sun Tzu counseled that “the superior strategist strikes while plans are being laid.”
For many organizations, interests, and activists—and the media outlets that cover them—by the time the focus shifts to the next year’s legislative agenda in Albany, the top players have already set the priorities—the battle lines are already drawn.
It’s with the aim of keeping ahead of the curve—and engaging the 2013 legislative session in Albany, instead of reacting to it—that we offer a new special section of City & State: Setting the Agenda.
In this issue and the next, we profile 10 of the top policy areas the Legislature will be grappling with in 2013. We also review what happened in the 2012 session and invite leading advocates in these arenas to stake out their ground for next year’s legislative showdowns.
The goal of Setting the Agenda is to begin a conversation with our legislators at a time of the year when there’s not too much noise to listen.
We hope it gets you thinking.
