KCMO residents can help set federal and state legislative priorities; Legislative Committee taking testimony Sept. 26, Oct. 17 and Oct. 31
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sept. 20, 2017
Kansas City, Missouri, residents are invited to share their thoughts about the top priorities federal and state lawmakers need to pursue in 2018.
The Legislative Committee is meeting on Sept. 26, Oct. 17 and Oct. 31 to take testimony they’ll use to shape the City’s federal and state legislative priorities and positions. The sessions are scheduled for 2:30-4 p.m. on the 10th floor of City Hall.
The City’s legislative priorities serve as the foundation of its advocacy efforts during state and federal legislative sessions. Each year the City asks for public input before finalizing its goals.
Those interested in participating should identify their top three legislative priorities beforehand. Organizations or city departments that share issues of interest and are planning to testify are encouraged to coordinate their efforts to avoid duplication.
To submit legislative priorities and to schedule a time to testify before the Legislative Committee, fill out the Legislative Priorities Request Form. Residents can also chime in on the topic at the City’s virtual town hall, KCMOmentum.
Email the committee with any questions or concerns.
