AWC Board adopts 2013 Legislative Priorities
On December 7, AWC’s Board of Directors met and affirmed their decision made in September that the collective voice of cities will focus on three core themes in the upcoming legislative session:
- Ensure fiscal sustainability and flexibility
- Foster and invest in economic development and infrastructure
- Enhance service provision
In addition, the Board reviewed and adopted positions on dozens of specific issues vetted by our Legislative Committee and deemed important for AWC to engage in during the session.
Thanks to all who’ve been involved, and please share our priorities with legislators and others in your community.
AWC Statement of Policy
In June 2012, AWC membership adopted a new streamlined, highly focused Statement of Policy that was drafted by AWC’s State & Federal Policy Committee (formerly called the Resolutions Committee).The Statement of Policy is the foundation of AWC’s general principles and a springboard for the association’s more detailed legislative agenda.
A huge thank you to the State & Federal Policy Committee for all of their hard work!
