At the Capitol

The 2014 legislative session is rapidly approaching. The second regular session of Arizona's 51st Legislature is scheduled to commence on January 13, 2014. On that same day, Governor Brewer will deliver her State of the State address from the floor of the House of Representatives.

Throughout the session, the League will offer a full suite of services and publications to assist Arizona cities and towns in communicating more effectively with their legislative delegation and in monitoring issues that affect Arizona communities.

Legislative Days
The League is prepared to help organize and facilitate a legislative day for your community. This represents an opportunity for local officials to discuss legislative issues over a private lunch with their representatives and senators. The League provides a convenient meeting space with catered lunch and can work with you on the meeting arrangements. Contact Dale Wiebusch at or 602-258-5786 to schedule your 2014 legislative day.

Municipal Policy Statement
The 2014 Municipal Policy Statement outlines the legislative priorities of the League for the upcoming session. It also includes a directory of legislators and the cities and towns they represent. You can access the statement online by clicking here.

Legislative Bulletin
Every week during the session, the League publishes its Legislative Bulletin, which summarizes developments with respect to bills of concern to municipalities. If you are not on our distribution list and would like to be added, please contact or 602-258-5786.

Town Halls
The League encourages municipalities to invite their delegations to participate in a local meeting to discuss legislative issues and priorities. Town hall meetings represent an excellent forum for your legislators to learn more about the issues affecting your community.

Your Voice at the Capitol
Each session the League staff prepares "Your Voice at the Capitol," which is a listing of state legislators by district, their contact information, and the cities and towns they represent. To view "Your Voice at the Capitol", click here.
