What to Watch for in 2017: The Guide to Issues Impacting Counties
The New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC) represents New York counties and their taxpayers before Federal, State and Local officials on matters germane to county governments. As such, the NYSAC legislative team is always advocating for county needs as they relate to state and federal legislation.
 
Below are the legislative issues we are watching at the state and federal levels in the coming year. These are the issues that impact counties, our taxpayers, and our communities. NYSAC will be the voice of counties on these issues, and we encourage you to work with us as we advocate for county needs.
