Interacting with State Legislators

There have been, and will be, many bills and regulations authored that have, and will have, an impact on our ability to govern ourselves.  Over the past few years there has been a movement by the state legislature to remove or reduce the ability for municipalities to self-govern.  I believe that our current administration has not been a strong or persistent advocate for our ability to govern ourselves.  We should maintain a close relationship with our state legislature and municipality groups to make our concerns known and to be forceful in expressing those concerns.
