League Board Adopts 2022 Legislative Priorities

The League Board of Directors adopted a largely encompassing set of five legislative priorities on Nov. 17, 2021. The priorities will help focus the League’s advocacy efforts during the 2022 legislative session, which begins on Jan. 31, 2022.

The legislative priorities are based on the Board’s assessment of member interest, as well as anticipated legislative issue areas for cities for the 2022 session.

The five priorities listed do not reflect the entire scope of the League’s anticipated activities at the Legislature during the 2022 legislative session. Additionally, the list may be modified by Board action.

The five priorities for 2022 are (listed alphabetically):

  • Bonding
  • Housing
  • Local Control/Preemption
  • Local Government Aid/Aid to Cities
  • Public Safety Duty Disability/Workers’ Compensation
