Ten trends - Part 2

The Council of State Governments (CSG) has issued Trends in America, Navigating Turbulence to Success (PDF, 1.67MB, 49p.), the second in its Trends in America series. (The first was covered in FR here.) Navigating reports on state responses to the 10 "change drivers" described in the first book. Some examples: for an aging society, to contain health care costs and provide caregiving options; in the information revolution, to provide more services online for increasingly computer-literate citizens; in resource management, to encourage energy conservation and deal with e-waste (discarded electronic products).

Rep. Marcus Oshiro is one of the Voices of Leadership (p. 41) in the report, for a statement on the change driver of Growth Dynamics. Rep. Oshiro describes Hawaii's Legacy Land Act of 2005 (HB1308, CD1, which became Act 156, SLH 2005) that earmarks 10 percent of conveyance taxes for a special land conservation fund.
