Mandates Meeting Primes the Conversation on Introduced Bills
March 30,, 2017
CSAC recently convened another productive meeting of the Local Government Mandated Services Working Group where participants discussed the deluge of bills with potential mandate impacts currently under consideration by the Legislature (list available here).
The fate of these bills are yet to be seen; however, they could possibly create more mandated work for counties and other local entities. Throughout the year, the working group will continue to discuss pending legislation, identify those of significant importance, and provide cost estimates to members of the Legislature. The working group also discusses reimbursement opportunities, relevant litigation, and action by the Commission on State Mandates.
CSAC welcomes any county officials from all departments to participate in the working group and provide feedback. The next meeting will be held on Thursday, May 25 at 3:00pm in person at the CSAC offices and by conference call.
