What Will Governors Focus on in 2023? We Dug Into the Data
March 23, 2023 | Katherine Tschopp
What are the top goals of governors this year? To find out, we sorted through State of the State or budget addresses in every state and noted big policy ideas cited by governors. Those issues were then sorted into policy categories and totaled to determine the most prevalent policy priorities for state legislators across the country. This year, the most prevalent issues cited by governors were those related to Health & Public Safety followed by Education.
