Policy Recommendations to Improve Military and Overseas Voting
Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2 p.m. EDT
FREE CSG eCademy Webcast
U.S. military and civilian overseas voters are often located in remote areas abroad, lacking access to the voting information and technology used by stateside voters in their home voting precincts, making it challenging for Americans overseas to cast their ballots. Variations in how states conduct elections and, in particular, how absentee ballots are provided, returned and counted can make voting even more complex. In this FREE CSG eCademy webcast, members of The Council of State Governments’ Overseas Voting Initiative Policy Working Group will explore policy recommendations that can help states improve the U.S. military and civilian overseas voting process.
Update on the Elementary and Secondary Education Act
Presented by CSG South/SLC
Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2 p.m. EDT
Since April, Congress has been working to rewrite the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act, or ESEA, also known as the No Child Left Behind Act. On July 8, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Student Success Act, introduced by Rep. John Kline of Minnesota, by a 218-213 vote. The following week, the U.S. Senate passed a bipartisan compromise forged by Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Sen. Patty Murray of Washington—the Every Child Achieves Act. Both the House and Senate bills have much in common, but also diverge on a few critical issues, such as school choice, accountability and national student test opt-outs.
This webinar will provide an update on the key ESEA differences currently being debated and provide insights into what longstanding implications the new federal education policies will have for state governments.
