Legislative Update vs. Business Issues – what’s the difference?

John Mangum provides two reports, one report that deals with issues directly related to the the death care industry, and another related to business issues.

The business report is provided to give you an overview of issues affecting business, which can also spill over into the death care industry or how you operate your businesses.
