State Issues 91: A Survey of Priority Issues for State Legislatures.
National Conference of State Legislatures, Denver, CO.
In September 1990, The National Conference of State Legislatures surveyed legislatures in 49 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia to identify priority issues for the 1991 sessions. After a brief introduction, this document presents survey results in a separate section for each of the 18 topic areas that, together, encompass almost 1,000 issues: (1) agriculture; (2) arts; (3) children, youth, and families; (4) commerce and banking; (5) economic development; (6) education; (7) elderly; (8) electric utilities; (9) energy; (10) environment and natural resources; (11) fiscal; (12) health care; (13) labor; (14) law enforcement and criminal justice; (15) liability and insurance; (16) state government; (17) telecommunications; and (18) transportation. Each section contains an introduction to the issues, a chart highlighting the national pattern of issue priorities, and a table that gives state-by-state issue priorities, the national priority ranking of major issues in that section, and, for each issue, the number of states ranking that issue among their top priorities for 1991. Appended are a list of the State Coordinators and a sample questionnaire. (CLA)
