Eckert (Belleville) and Second Vice President Gene Williams (Lynwood) each made remarks, and Executive Director Brad Cole fielded questions from reporters. The agenda as well as the press release are available via the link below.
In advance of the spring legislative session, IML has outlined its 2017 Legislative Agenda, which represents part of what will be the aggressive and forward-leaning legislative effort this year. As always, IML will work to ensure that local elected officials and their constituents have a strong, clear voice in the decisions made at the state and federal level.
Questions have arisen following the passage of a 2015 law requiring the consolidation of 9-1-1 systems. The IML Managers Committee published a resource document to explain the various consolidation provisions. The document includes consolidation requirements based upon county population and number of existing systems, the critical target dates that must be achieved, surcharge amounts and distributions and information about the Statewide 9-1-1 Advisory Board.
