Richland supports legislation that promotes the City Council’s Strategic Leadership Plan and protects the City’s ability to provide basic municipal services to its citizens.
Richland opposes legislation that would either preempt authority or discretion that is traditionally and historically vested with local governments, or which would impose new or additional unfunded mandates upon local jurisdictions.
Richland looks to the Legislature to strengthen the state and local government partnership and protect current revenue sources available to the City, provide new revenue options and to provide flexibility in the use of existing revenues.
Our 2017 Legislative priorities are consistent with those of the Association of Washington Cities (AWC). For additional information visit www.awcnet.org or contact the Assistant City Manager's office at 942-7381.
