Committee outlines federal agenda

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Every year, the Los Alamos County Council adopts a federal agenda, which is used as a guide for the council’s federal-level intergovernmental efforts.


A council committee meets to develop the agenda and produce recommended county priority topics. This year’s committee members were Council Chairman Jim Hall and Councilors Michael Wheeler and Jim West.


During last Tuesday night’s county council meeting, Assistant County Administrator made a presentation to council regarding the federal agenda. “Annually we prepare a federal agenda about this time of year,” Mortillaro said.


According to county documents, the federal agenda will serve as guidance from the county council to staff and their legislative support contractor, in dealing with various federal officials and entities with a consistent voice. This also allows staff to focus its attention on the direction approved by council.


The committee used four sources to determine the county’s priorities. They were: Regional, state and national identified priorities; staff identified and recommended issues; county intergovernmental priorities; and a review of the state and federal budgets.
