ORLA's contract lobbyist and director of government affairs discuss what's ahead this legislative session. We get into everything from the dynamics of the Capitol to whether or not the "kicker" will be kicked. Other hospitality concerns this year include the possibility of the DUII threshold to be reduced to .05 BAC, the single-use disposable plastic debate, and paid family leave. And as always, we're keeping an eye on lodging taxes – not only protecting the use of lodging tax dollars, but also lodging tax compliance with home sharing platforms.
