RE: Federal Relations Resource News: “The Making of Nation’s Laws” Linked League Federal Relations Webpage Updated
For years now, New Jersey Mayors have been using our popular pamphlet, “The Making of Our Nation’s Law,” for presentations before youth groups, civic associations and other constituent gatherings. The pamphlet concisely explains how the Legislative Branch operates in the United States Capitol. If you find it useful, you can link your municipal website to ours, where the pamphlet appears at www.njslom.org/nations_laws.html.
Based on the 67 page brochure, written by House of Representatives’ Parliamentarian Charles Johnson, our Federal Relations staff has boiled everything down to a four page piece, without omitting an explanation of any step along the way.
You might also want to visit the League’s informative “Federal Updates and National Links” page at www.njslom.org/federal_updates.html. There, you will find convenient links to resources available through the National League of Cities – America’s oldest and largest association dedicated to the serving the needs of America’s municipal officials.
Other links there will direct you to the latest information concerning both Houses of Congress, the Federal Judiciary, the White House and all Executive Branch Departments and Cabinet level agencies. There are links to the Congress.gov Legislative Information site, for up-to-the-minute information on Congressional actions, and a link to the Federal Register, for the latest regulatory proposals and adoptions.
We’ve also included a link to the U.S. Flag Code, which can answer every question about the proper handling and display of our National Flag.
Finally, remember that you can access the League’s latest letters on Federal issues on our “Washington Watch” page at www.njslom.org/washing.html.
Please let us know how we can improve our Federal Relations service. And if you have any suggestions, comments or questions, please contact Jon Moran at 609-695-3481 ext. 121 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Very truly yours,
