News and Events

On this page you can find information about all kinds of policy news, past and present.  The "News" section below contains links to current events as well as an extensive archive of past headlines.  You can also find links to current and past editions of the North America Policy Newsletter.  

We are currently working on building a calendar that will track upcoming upcoming policy-related events from all around the country, with a particular focus on events related to our three core focus areas.  These could include conferences, hearings, town hall meetings, and public comment periods that are open.  We will do our best to keep this calendar current but if you know of an event not posted here, please let us know!  For information on upcoming SCB events, please visit SCB's main meetings page.
