Policy Committees

The League has five standing policy committees comprised of mayors and councilmembers from each congressional district in the state. The committees convene in February/March at League headquarters to hear from state and federal resource advisors and to update their policy statements for the League’s Policies and Goals document. This important document will be used by the Committee on State and Federal Legislation when it meets in December to develop the League’s Legislative Package for the Regular Session.
