GOPAC announced Wednesday that it will host its sixth annual State and Local Summit in Nashville, from Sept. 8-11. The event will attract legislative leaders from across the country, including senate presidents, speakers of the house, and committee chairs, to share policy ideas and trade best practices in implementing conservative principles to create jobs, get government spending under control and make government more effective in delivering public services.
This year’s summit will be chaired by Tennessee Lieutenant Governor and Speaker of the Senate Ron Ramsey, who is also a member of GOPAC’s Legislative Leaders Advisory Board. Under his leadership, Tennessee has become a model of economic growth and smaller government with lower taxes and less debt, officials said.
“Our legislative leaders are putting into place the solutions that create jobs and boost the economy in each of their respective states,” said Frank Donatelli, chairman of GOPAC. “The State and Local Summit is a great opportunity for them to come together to share their ideas on what’s working and what’s not, and help create a community of reform-minded leaders with a platform of policies that make a difference.”
“I am excited to welcome GOPAC’s State and Local Summit to Nashville. I look forward to bringing together conservative leaders from across the nation to compare notes on effective conservative governance,” said Lt. Governor Ramsey. “I can’t wait to share the story of Tennessee conservative success as well as learn from state and local leaders around the country who share our core values of limited government, economic growth and freedom.”
Additional members of GOPAC’s 2013 Legislative Leaders Advisory Board will also participate in this year’s summit, relaying their experiences in passing bold, conservative reforms with both state and national Republican leaders. Through panel discussions, policy sessions and networking events, attendees are offered a unique opportunity to advance free-market conservatism across all levels of government.
