The Cities Association bylaws establish the Legislative Action Committee (LAC) with one representative and alternate from each member city, who each receive one vote. The LAC:
Enables the Cities Association to advocate on issues of mutual interest
Provides basic legislative updates to cities with little or no legislative staff.
Organizes emergency responses to urgent issues.
LAC meets as needed before the Board of Directors meetings.
