LMC 2016 City Policies Available Now

The LMC 2016 City Policies publication was created with member input and approved by the LMC Board on Nov. 19, 2015. It is the only comprehensive statewide advocacy agenda for all Minnesota cities.

The policies cover the League’s legislative initiatives and defensive positions on a wide array of issues. They will be referenced throughout the 2016 legislative session to guide the advocacy efforts of the League and individual Minnesota cities.

League policies cover the following areas:

The city policies are crafted with input from hundreds of city officials from across the state participating in the League’s four policy committees, Regional Meetings, Annual Conference, and many other member interactions.

Legislative priorities
The League’s Board also approved the 2016 legislative priorities at their Nov. 19 meeting. The priorities will help focus the League’s advocacy efforts during the upcoming legislative session, which begins on March 8.

Interim board policies
The LMC Board of Directors can adopt policies that relate to legislative issues that arise after the policy committees have finished meeting. Board interim policies expire at the end of that legislative session and any interim policies are forwarded to the appropriate policy committee for consideration during the subsequent policy committee process. The Board has adopted one policy on state compliance with the federal REAL ID Act for the 2016 session.
