Busy fall schedule ahead for Alberta legislature

EDMONTON, AB – Strengthening the workforce, economic diversification, infrastructure spending, growing the province’s resources and protecting lives will be some of the key focuses for the Alberta legislature over the next few weeks.

The fall sitting reconvenes today (Oct. 25).

House Leader Jason Nixon says it’ll be a robust agenda with about 18 to 20 bills expected to be passed before MLAs take their Christmas break.

One of those bills may have to do with at least one of the two province-wide referendum questions that were on last week’s civic election ballot. “I will give notice inside the legislature of a motion around equalization that will, hopefully, be scheduled to be debated Wednesday of this week (Oct. 27), and I hope to be passed before the end of the legislative week to send a clear message to Ottawa.”

The full results of both of the referendum questions will be released Tuesday morning (Oct. 26).

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
