League Policy Committees
A Unique Opportunity to Serve
Committees serve League members by providing general direction
and legislative policy recommendations to the Board of Trustees and League staff on a variety of local government
issues. Our advocacy efforts depend on input from the Legislative Governance
Committee and five Policy Committees.
Core Legislative Principles 2016-2017
The League’s five Policy Committees consider new legislative ideas and provide positions on legislation as it is introduced. The Policy Committees are:
