The Finance, Administration and Intergovernmental Relations Committee is responsible for developing policy positions and leading NLC’s advocacy on issues involving intergovernmental relations (including Federalism and unfunded mandates), Census, municipal pensions, municipal bonds and capital finance, tax reform, antitrust issues, civil rights, and labor relations. Most recently, the committee has focused on protecting the interests of cities in federal tax reform efforts, including the tax exemption of municipal bonds, and advocating for local taxing authority on online remote sales transactions.
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.
