Upcoming League Webinars Will Focus on Federal Advocacy and Pending State Legislation

June 27, 2014
The League is gearing up for two important webinars in the coming weeks: Summer Recess/End of Session Legislative Briefing and Federal Issues — City Revenue Authority, Transportation Reauthorization and Appropriations.
 
The webinars will be held July 14 and 15 respectively and are free to League members and Partners.
Monday, July 14 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
 
The League’s legislative team will hold a 90-minute briefing on major bills that cities need to advocate for and against when the Legislature reconvenes after its summer recess on Aug. 4.
 
With the legislative session ending on Aug. 31, this briefing is intended to help city officials focus in our effort to protect local authority and voice their support and opposition on key bills. Staff will provide a summary of key legislation including illicit massage, economic development, marijuana regulation, and employee relations bills.
 
Register online by 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 10. Contact information will be sent by the close of business on July 11. One connection per city. The webinar is free to members and League Partners. Non-members will be charged $100 per login.
 
Tuesday, July 15 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
 
During this one hour webinar, the League’s federal legislative team will review the top federal issues that will impact local governments and give an update on the federal transportation reauthorization. There are multiple efforts to limit or eliminate local revenue authority and it is vital for cities to weigh in with their congressional representatives on these important issues.
 
Register online by 12 p.m. on Monday, July 14. Contact information will be sent on the afternoon of July 14. The webinar is free to members and League Partners. Non-members will be charged $100 per login.
