In preparation for the meeting of the 87th Legislature, the TAC Legislative Services department is updating various issue briefs to help county officials stay aware of and better understand policy topics important to county government.
Each issue brief includes background on a specific topic and an explanation of the current developments shaping it. County priorities for the policy topic are also defined.
County officials can find all the legislative issue briefs on the TAC website at www.county.org/Legislative.
Recent updates include these topics:
- Emergency Preparedness
- Running the State's Trial Courts — The County Role in the Judicial System
- Counties and Public Debt
- Unfunded Mandates
- General Revenue-Dedicated Accounts and the State Budget
All issue briefs will be updated in the coming months.
