2015 Municipal Policy Statement

The 2015 Municipal Policy Statement is now available. The Policy Statement outlines the legislative priorities of the League for the upcoming session. It also includes a directory of legislators and the cities and towns they represent. You can access the statement online by clicking here.

52nd Legislature, First Regular Session

The new legislative session starts January 12, 2015, and promises to be robust. With a number of new members and a new Governor, city and town participation will be crucial. If you haven’t already done so, now is a good time to gear up for the coming year.

You can contact your legislative delegation through this link Email is good; phone is better and in-person the best. The League can help you to set up appointments, or host a Legislative Day for you and your community. Just call us at 602-258-5786 and ask for the Legislative Department.

You can also register to weigh in on pending legislation at the legislative website. The Request to Speak (RTS) system allows you to offer your opinion of a bill electronically, or if you wish, to actually speak in front of a committee. If you are already registered you can log in to your account and provide your input. If you haven’t registered yet, simply contact the League offices and we will gladly assist you.

Lastly, getting to know your legislators in your home area is crucial. Invite them to events or a council meeting and let them know that cities and towns are great partners when it comes to moving Arizona in the right direction!

These committees will discuss and evaluate policy ideas throughout the year in preparation for presentation and possible adoption at the Annual Conference.
