Headed into the 2021 session, legislative leadership communicated clearly that given the unique, unprecedented challenges posed by a virtual session, the number of bills introduced would be greatly reduced and those advanced would need to clearly relate to legislative priorities. Given these challenges, WACO is pleased and proud that 6 of our original 8 priority bills were successfully passed this session. Among them, the first cross-affiliate bill in recent history, which gained us repeated praise for its no-cost continuity of operations focus and the collaboration among affiliates it represented. WACO members worked diligently with legislators and stakeholders on positive solutions to bills that posed significant implementation challenges, and as a result greatly reduced the number of bills on which sustained opposition was required.
