- Legislative priorities related to K-12 education and workforce
- Surprises this year as it related to K-12 education and workforce
- Biggest wins for the workforce development community
- Issues that arose and became important that were not strictly workforce issues, but certainly impact the workforce development ecosystem
- Outstanding issues that did not make it through this year but may be presented again next year
- Anything new that may be in the works for next year
