Proposed 2020 Legislative Priorities

SUBJECT/PROPOSAL/REQUEST: Consider the Proposed 2020 Legislative Priorities

ITEM TYPE: Regular Action Item

STAFF CONTACT(S): Richardson, Kamptner

PRESENTER (S): Greg Kamptner


REVIEWED BY: Jeffrey B. Richardson

BACKGROUND: Each year the Board considers and approves its legislative priorities. The Board then meets with the County's local delegation from the General Assembly to discuss these priorities and submits them to the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC), the Virginia Association of Counties (VACo), and the Virginia Municipal League (VML). Other initiatives are sometimes added prior to the General Assembly session.

This is the first of at least three anticipated Board discussions to develop its priorities for the 2020 General Assembly session.

STRATEGIC PLAN: Mission: To enhance the well-being and quality of life for all citizens through the provision of the highest level of public service consistent with the prudent use of public funds.

DISCUSSION: Six legislative priorities are proposed for discussion:

-Impact fees

-Regulating carrying specified loaded weapons in public areas

-Equal taxing authority

-Providing in-kind resources to volunteer firefighting and emergency service providers

-Civil penalties for open burning violations

-Expanding the powers of land bank entities

These six priorities, along with initiatives carried over from last year, are explained in Attachment A.

BUDGET IMPACT: There are no specific, identifiable budget impacts.

Staff recommends that the Board review the 2020 Proposed Legislative Priorities and recommend any additions it determines to be appropriate, to be brought back at a later date so desired by the Board for submission to the TJPDC, VACo and VML.
