Committees Approve Immigration Reform Resolution


Glazer, Melinda, Nation's Cities Weekly


NLC's Public Safety and Crime Prevention (PSCP) steering committee has joined with two other steering committees to endorse a proposed resolution supporting comprehensive immigration reform, which includes a process for earned legalization and ultimately citizenship for undocumented workers currently living in the United States,

Last month, both the Human Development and the Community and Economic Development steering committees endorsed the resolution, which will be forwarded to the NLC Board of Directors for action in July.

The PSCP steering committee also developed new National Municipal Policy language to sharpen NLC's position on enforcement of federal immigration laws. The proposed policy language will also be considered next month by the Board of Directors along with new policy language developed by the Human Development committee to ensure that NLC has up-to-date policy on all aspects of comprehensive immigration reform as the House and Senate move toward working out the major differences between their respective bills.

Spring Meeting

Chaired by Brea, Calif., Mayor Pro Tern Marty Simonoff, the PSCP steering committee met with the Information Technology and Communications (ITC) steering committee, chaired by Pembroke Pines, Fla., Mayor Frank Ortis, for a joint spring meeting in Pembroke Pines, June 15-17.

During the meeting, the PSCP steering committee addressed proposals related to the reorganization of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The committee heard from FEMA Intergovernmental Affairs Director Casey Long; PBS&J Vice President Eric Tolbert; House Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Science, and Technology Majority Senior Staff Pat Lee; House Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Science, and Technology Minority Counsel Veronique Pluviose-Fenton; and House Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings and Emergency Management Staff Director Dan Mathews.
