(Published Nov 19, 2018)

The League Board of Directors adopted a diverse list of legislative priorities on Nov. 15. The priorities will help focus the League’s advocacy efforts during the 2019 legislative session, which begins on Jan. 8, 2019.

The legislative priorities are based on the Board’s assessment of member interest, gleaned from discussions that occurred during the League’s policy committee process as well as discussions with members during the fall Regional Meetings and other membership interaction.

The priority list does not reflect the entire scope of the League’s anticipated activities at the Legislature during the 2019 legislative session. Additionally, the list may be modified by Board action.

Priorities for 2019 are (listed alphabetically):

  • City Street Funding
  • Funding Local Government Aid (LGA)
  • Housing
  • Infrastructure Fees
  • Local Control
  • Police and Fire Disability Benefits
  • Presidential Primary
  • Sales Tax Exemption on Construction Materials
  • Telecommunications
  • Urban Forest Management Funding

The Board also approved the LMC 2019 City Policies on Nov. 15.
