December 09, 2021 City Council Regular Meeting
51. Approval of the City of Savannah's 2022 Sate Legislative Agenda
Strategic Priority
Good Government

­City Council annually adopts a legislative agenda to highlight items that require action during the Georgia Legislative Session. The City of Savannah's legislative agenda serves as a roadmap for which items our State Legislative Delegation will work toward accomplishing. All items placed on the City’s Legislative Agenda must be approved by a majority vote of City Council.

The City's Legislative Agenda is formulated through three primary inputs. First, is the priorities and feedback directly from City Council members. Next, is input from City staff regarding state laws or policies that impact City services or quality of life issues for Savannah residents, and third is consultation with Georgia Municipal Association about upcoming threats and opportunities.

City Council received a memo requesting input on legislative priorities on September 30, 2021 and held a Workshop on the draft legislative agenda on November 23, 2021.

The Georgia State legislation session will begin on January 10, 2022.

The City Manager recommends City Council approve the adoption of attached 2022 Legislative Agenda.
