California City Officials Encouraged to Attend NLC’s Congressional City Conference in Washington D.C. in March

February 22, 2013

Yesterday, National League of Cities (NLC) President Marie Lopez Rogers, NLC Executive Director Clarence E. Anthony, along with the League of California Cities President Bill Bogaard and League Executive Director Chris McKenzie issued a joint letter to California city officials encouraging them to attend NLC’s Congressional Cities Conference in Washington D.C. on March 9-13.

 

The letter detailed key federal policy issues that will be addressed at the conference including:

  • How federal budget deficit reduction plans could affect municipal bonds.
  • Federal job creation and economic development strategies.
  • Federal tax code reform and municipal finance, including legislation to simply allow state and local governments the flexibility to collect the taxes already owed to them on remote online purchases-not raising existing taxes.
  • Immigration Reform.
  • Water and transportation infrastructure investment.
  • Public safety.
  • Regulatory reform and streamlining.
