2015 State Legislative Agenda.
Recommended Action
I move that Council adopt the 2015 State Legislative Agenda.
Administrator's Recommendation
The County Administrator recommends that Council approve the motion as presented.
Each year, Council adopts a State Legislative Agenda.  This document is used as a guide for our intergovernmental efforts.  The State Legislative Agenda provides direction from the County Council to staff and our legislative support contractor when working with various State officials and entities, providing for a consistent voice in our messaging.  The 2015 Legislative Session commences on January 20 and is scheduled for 90 days.
As in the past, when setting the County's State Legislative Agenda, four broad sources are used for determining priority areas.  These sources include:
- Regional, state, and national organizations identified priorities (see attached NMAC and NMML agendas);
- Staff recommended issues;
- County intergovernmental priorities; and
- Review of state and federal budgets.
Fiscal and Staff Impact/Planned Item
This year's agenda includes maintaining the County's current GRT revenue receipts.
