Legislative Program

The annual County Legislative Programincludes 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. Many of these policies have direct state or county budget implications. As a result of these differences in legislative vs. budget policies, the association has delineated our state legislative advocacy and state budget advocacy on the subsequent pages.
