RESOLUTION - Establishing the City positions on matters that may come before the 108th United States Congress during its 1st session in 2003.


LEGISLATIVE, RULES AND ETHICS COMMITTEE recommends "IMMEDIATE ADOPTION AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Jack Schrimsher, Law Department, testified on behalf of this resolution. This is the annual resolution by which the city established its legislative priorities for the United State Congress. This is done every year. During the fall, city departments and outside agencies came before the Legislative Committee with their federal and state priorities. Those priorities were then broken down by staff headed by Thommie Emery-Davis. The list is then sent to the city's lobbyist where that person will fight for the city to get the priorities before congress.
