State Legislative Platform
The League of Kansas Municipalities annually approves a Statement of Municipal Policy concerning legislative issues and positions of importance to municipalities. The City's 2014 State Legislative Platform endorses the League's Statement of Municipal Policy and includes a local supplement that addresses three local issues of importance.
The Legislative Platform provides positions that are of special importance to the City of Abilene and its citizens. The State Legislative Platform serves as a communication tool for state elected officials and citizens. It provides a summary of the City's position on various legislative issues with a potential impact to municipal government and also provides a brief description of specific issues of special importance to the City of Abilene.
Positions articulated in the platform also provide guidance on federal issues that may arise with an influence on municipal operations.
