The LMC 2014 City Policies publication was created with member input and approved by the LMC Board on Nov. 21, 2013. It is the only comprehensive statewide advocacy agenda for all Minnesota cities. The policies cover the League's legislative initiatives and defensive positions on a wide array of issues. They will be referenced throughout the 2014 legislative session to guide the advocacy efforts of the League and individual Minnesota cities.
