Agenda Item #54
2015 State Legislative Platform (Draft)
Contact and/or Presenter Information
Nicholas Azzara, Information Outreach Manager, ext. 3771
Initial discussion of the 2015 Legislative Platform.
The 2015 Legislative Session begins March 3, 2015.
Staff has compiled a list of state and local issues for the Board to consider as part of its 2015 State Legislative Platform, a document that articulates the Board's position on various proposals that are likely to come before state leaders next spring. The platform is also a guiding document for the local issues Manatee hopes to accomplish at the state level.
The draft presented on Oct. 21 is a combination of past issues on our platform, new issues that appear to be percolating at the state level, and local issues that require some form of state intervention.
Staff will take feedback from the Board at the Oct. 21 meeting and return in November with a final platform for consideration and adoption.
