Summer Legislative Conference

The Summer Legislative Conference is traditionally focused on 1) an update on legislative action that may have impacted local governments, 2) review of outstanding issues found in bills or the budget, and 3) preparation of AML’s policy and position statement. We hear from our lobbying team, State officials and legislators, and discuss priorities facing local governments.
