CHAMBERSBURG — Jeffrey Stonehill has been appointed to serve on the International City/County Management Association’s Governmental Affairs and Policy Committee.
The committee is tasked with reviewing current and proposed federal and state legislation for impacts on local governments. It serves as a sounding board on emerging policy issues and provides feedback on legal questions affecting local governments.
“GAPC members are the eyes, ears and early warning flag for these legislative policies,” Stonehill said about the appointment.
Members look at issues including fiscal policy, trade, taxes, unfunded mandates, homeland security, pensions and human services, infrastructure and more.
The committee meets twice annually, once in the fall at the ICMA Annual Conference and again in the spring, in conjunction with the NLC and NACo legislative conferences in Washington, D.C.
Each year, the Committee publishes a White Paper on one important subject. Previous White Paper documents can be found here.
Stonehill said he hopes to positively impact the operation of Chambersburg and other Pennsylvania communities as a member of the committee.
