2021 City Day at the Capitol

Thursday, January 28, 2021

 

LOC invites you to join mayors, city councilors, and city staff members for our “City Day at the Capitol.”  This event is your chance to stand with other city officials from around Oregon in support of legislative actions that will return greater local authority over local decisions.  It is also the time to let legislators know how actions they take could impact our communities and the difficult decisions we make. By coming together, our collective voices will make a difference to advance our legislative agenda.

During City Day, the legislative session will be in full swing.  Many issues critical to cities will be under consideration, including the LOC’s seven legislative priorities—mental health investment, COVID-19 economic recovery investments, comprehensive infrastructure package, property tax reform, housing services investment, water utility and rate assistance, and disaster relief and recovery. Attendees will be briefed by League staff on these and other issues.  Attendees will also hear from the legislative leadership about their objectives for the session.    

Questions? Contact Jenna Jones, Legislative Analyst at jjones@orcities.org
