MTA influences legislation, policy and regulations by representing townships before the Legislature, the executive office and state agencies. The MTA staff initiates and monitors legislation that is in the best interest of townships and follows it through the committee meetings, hearings and legislative sessions that precede its passage. Member townships are kept informed of the status of legislation through the monthly publication Capitol Currents and via Weekly Legislative Update. When immediate legislative action is needed, we also send Action Alerts. MTA appears before legislative standing and special committees and represents townships on numerous statewide task forces.
