Energy, Environment & Natural Resources Federal Advocacy Committee
The Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Committee is responsible for developing policy and leading NLC’s advocacy on infrastructure and sustainability-related issues such as water infrastructure and water quality, air quality, energy, climate change, solid and hazardous waste management, local food systems, and public lands. Most recently, the committee has focused on issues pertaining to water infrastructure, such as financing mechanisms and addressing community and residential affordability, and climate change mitigation, adaptation and community resilience.
NLC's Federal Advocacy Committee members include local elected officials and city staff from NLC member cities and towns across the country who are committed to discussing and influencing federal policy that has a direct and profound impact on local government operations.
