Council outlines state legislative priorites

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

  Legislators are off to a running start as they convene for a 60-day session next week. They are starting the session with a $450 million deficit staring them down. One of the topics during Tuesday night’s county council meeting was the state agenda.

  The county has many relationships with the state and federal government that are deemed important. In addition, both state and federal governments regulate a variety of the county’s functions. Not only must the county continuously work to comply with, understand and provide input to state and federal laws and regulations that have an impact on their operations, but they must also provide input to federal and state laws that can impact their activities.

  Annually, the county council adopts a federal agenda, as well as a state agenda. These documents are used as a guide for the county’s intergovernmental efforts and federal and local level. The agendas were developed through their respective council committees late last year in order to recommend county priority topics.

  The county has listed the following Capital Outlay requests in priority order on their state agenda:

•    West Jemez Bypass Road: $4 million (Governor’s request)
