BODY


WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County is the largest county in the State of Florida and the eighth largest county in the U.S.; and
WHEREAS, each year, many pieces of legislation are filed at both the federal and state levels that could substantially affect Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, this Board enacts resolutions throughout the year urging the U.S. Congress and the Florida Legislature to pass or defeat legislation, along with resolutions supporting, opposing or otherwise taking positions on legislation; and
WHEREAS, these resolutions include language directing the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs to include the item in the federal or state legislative package or both; and
WHEREAS, once each year the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs presents a draft federal and state legislative agenda to the Board of County Commissioners for approval; and

WHEREAS, this draft legislative agenda currently includes critical priorities and departmental legislative requests, but does not include “urging” resolutions and other resolutions related to federal and state legislation that the Board has passed to date for that year; and
WHEREAS, the draft federal and state legislative agendas presented should include all “urging” resolutions and and other resolution related to federal and state legislation that the Board has passed to date for the current Congress or session,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board directs the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, when it presents the proposed federal or state legislative agenda respectively to the Board, to include all “urging” resolutions and other resolutions related to federal or state legislation passed by the Board of County Commissioners to date for the current Congress or session.
