MTA provides a unified voice for Michigan townships on both the state and federal levels. The Association influences legislation, policy and regulations by representing townships before the Legislature, the executive office and state agencies. Each day, MTA advocates for local authority that the broadest spectrum of township officials need to preserve, protect and enhance the quality of life for half of all Michigan residents. Our Government Relations staff appears before legislative standing and special committees and represents townships on numerous statewide task forces.
