NLC's Federal Advocacy team serves as the voice for America's cities in Washington, D.C. Through lobbying efforts and grassroots activity, NLC proactively drives federal policy on the issues that matter the most to cities by advancing a member-driven annual federal action agenda, protecting local authority in regulatory proceedings, and championing the interest of cities in legal cases of national importance to local governments. Working in partnership with 49 state municipal leagues and NLC’s seven federal advocacy committees, the Federal Advocacy team serves as both a resource and an advocate for the more than 19,000 cities NLC represents.
