NACo Human Services & Education Steering Committee Report - 2013 Annual Conference

Posted Date: 
August 5, 2013

Carl Seilstad, Fergus County Commissioner

On 7/20/2013 the NACo Human Services and Education met in Fort Worth Texas. The first half of our meeting was held jointly with the Justice and Public Safety Committee. The topic of the joint meeting was a presentation by Scott Santoro on Human Trafficking.  The National Association of Counties has partnered with Homeland Security in combating Human Trafficking. I reported on this after last year’s conference and the issue still exists. There are approximately 27 million victims worldwide and has been estimated to be a 32 billion dollar industry. When you imagine this type of money you can see why our youth from every community, county, state and worldwide are at risk. There are educational materials on line at www. dhs.gov/human trafficking. They call their efforts the Blue Campaign and if you do a search for blue campaign the information should come up.

This year the EELU claimed 6 resolutions from Public Lands Committee.

NACo Community and Economic Development Steering Committee Report - 2013 Legislative Conference

This was my first meeting on the Community and Economic Development Steering Committee and to be frank, I felt like I was running to catch a fast moving train once the resolutions were brought forward.  I had obtained a complete set of the resolutions in advance of the meeting and was prepared to engage in a discussion of them, but none occurred.  It was clear that the vetting had already occurred at the subcommittee level and the rest of the committee was not in a mood to rehash prior discussions.  The Chairman skillfully moved the resolutions at a speed that would make any conductor proud and the package was approved with no discussion in very short order.
