Whether your municipality has a population of 300 or 300,000, it has a major stake in the legislative deliberations in Trenton. Consequently, an important League priority is the defense of home rule autonomy. 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.
