Lawmakers Focus on Collaboration and Policy at Cross-border Conference

Cameron Westhead, the MLA for Banff-Cochrane, will attend the Council of State Governments (CSG Midwest) Midwestern Legislative Conference July 17-20 in Milwaukee, Wis.

CSG Midwest is a regional forum bringing together legislators and government leaders from 11 states and four Canadian provinces. The Milwaukee conference will advance discussions on agriculture and economic development and will feature a keynote presentation and sessions on water policy, water quality and infrastructure.

“As we start on the largest infrastructure build in Alberta’s history, this is an important opportunity to learn from experiences in other jurisdictions. It’s also a chance to tell our biggest energy customers first-hand about our Climate Leadership Plan and energy innovation programs, and to show that Alberta is a great place to do business.”
