Whether your municipality has a population of 300 or 300,000, it has a major stake in the legislative deliberations in Trenton.

Every bill pending before the Legislature that might affect localities is evaluated by the League's 100-member Legislative Committee, and aggressively opposed or supported by the League's lobbying team in concert with local officials around the state.
