Editor’s Message

This is my swan song. After four years I am stepping down as Editor of State & Local Law News. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with Rick Bright, our ABA Managing Editor, Beth Kinne, our Associate Editor, and Bill Scheiderich, our new Associate Editor who will take over as Editor with the Fall 2017 issue, as well as Tamara Edmonds Askew, Leola Grant Tucker, and the full range of Section Chairs, officers, council members, and committee chairs and authors to communicate with our approximately 7,000 members and provide substantive content.
