League Releases Federal Lobbying Documents

Two California-focused Events Planned

March 6, 2015
As thousands of city officials visit Washington D.C. next week as part of NLC’s Congressional City Conference (link to Monday’s article), Congress will have the opportunity to hear what is important to cities across the nation.
 
The League released several documents this week to support individual city lobbying efforts.

Documents include:  
  • 2015 League Federal Priorities
  • Federal Transportation Reauthorization Priorities
  • Funding for Critical Federal Programs
  • Innovative Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Financing
  • Protect Local Authority and Revenue 
Printed materials including these documents will be available to attendees at the California reception Monday night:
 
League of California Cities Reception
Monday, March 9
6 to 7:30 p.m.
Marriott Wardman Park Hotel

On Tuesday, the League will host a special briefing for U.S. House of Representatives staff on the League’s Federal Priorities with a focus on Transportation. As the House will not be in session during the conference, the League encourages all California attendees to attend the briefing and connect with the staff of their representative.  While RSVPs for this event are not required, the League would like to have a general count in order to appropriately plan. Please RSVP to mdesmond@cacities.org.
