Legislative Priorities

The annual County Legislative Program includes a series of reform proposals developed by county delegates, with a goal of making New York a better, stronger and economically viable state in which to live, work, and raise a family. 

The components of the Legislative Program reflect the need for specific state or federal action. These policies have a direct impact on local governments, our residents, and the businesses in our communities.
