Council outlines legislative priorities

-A A +A
By The Staff

Every year County Council adopts a State Legislative Priority Position Statement, which is used as a guide to council’s intergovernmental efforts. This year, the council’s State Legislative Committee developed the State Legislative Priority Position Statement. The committee meets in an effort to develop the statement and makes recommendations on the County’s priority topics.

  Councilors who served on this year’s committee were: Council Vice Chair Robert Gibson, and Councilors Nona Bowman and Ken Milder. The State Legislative Priority Statement will serve as a guide from council to the legislative support contractor and staff who are dealing with various state officials and entities. The statement also allows staff to focus its attention on Council’s approved direction. Four sources are used for determining the County’s priorities when working on the Statement. These sources are: Regional, state and national organizations identified priorities; staff recommended and identified issues; county intergovernmental priorities and a review of state and federal budgets. The 2009 Legislative Session will begin on January 20, 2009 and will end on March 21, 2009 and will run the span of 60 days.
