Thanks for Making City Officials' Day at the Capitol a Success!

Posted By Justin Ruen, Monday, February 1, 2016

Thanks to the nearly 220 city officials who were in attendance at last week's City Officials' Day at the Capitol.  

The day kicked off with a legislative briefing featuring remarks from Lieutenant Governor Brad Little on the most significant issues facing cities and the State of Idaho.  

Dr. Jim Weatherby moderated a legislative panel including Senate President Pro Tem Sen. Brent Hill of Rexburg, House Local Government Committee Chair Rep. Lynn Luker of Boise, and Co-Chair of the Urban Renewal Interim Committee Rep. Rick Youngblood of Nampa.  

City officials enjoyed a great lunch with nearly all of the 105 members of the Idaho Legislature in attendance, as well as several state executive branch officials and state agency heads.  

AIC presented the legislators with the much loved Idaho ties and scarves that are seen so frequently in the capitol.  

In the afternoon, city officials had the opportunity to tour the capitol, check out committee hearings, or schedule meetings with legislators and state agency staff.

Thanks again for making the 2016 City Officials' Day at the Capitol a success!

See You at City Officials' Day at the Capitol

Posted By Justin Ruen, Monday, January 25, 2016

We look forward to seeing many city officials in Boise on Thursday, January 28 at the annual City Officials' Day at the Capitol.  There is still time to register online.  

The event will kick off with a Legislative Briefing at 9:00 a.m. in the Summit Room of the Boise Centre.  The morning session will feature remarks from Idaho Lieutenant Governor Brad Little.  We will also have a legislative panel moderated by Dr. Jim Weatherby, including Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill of Rexburg, House Local Government Committee Chair Rep. Lynn Luker of Boise and Rep. Rick Youngblood of Nampa.  The morning session will also feature discussion concerning several legislative hot topics.

The meeting will break shortly before Noon to allow city officials to walk or take the AIC shuttles to the capitol to meet their legislators outside the House and Senate chambers on the third floor of the capitol building.  City officials then escort the legislators to the luncheon at the Boise Centre, which will be in the Eagle Room.

In the afternoon, city officials can take a tour of the capitol, attend legislative committee hearings, or schedule private meetings with legislators or state agency staff.

We strongly recommend calling your legislators to let them know you will be in town and would like to sit with them at lunch.  You can contact your legislator through the Legislative Information Center at (208) 332-1000.  Generally, it is easiest to meet up with legislators outside of the House and Senate chambers at the capitol.

See you on Thursday!

Thanks for Making City Officials’ Day at the Capitol a Success!

Posted By Justin Ruen, Monday, February 2, 2015

Nearly 180 Idaho city officials participated in the 2015 City Officials’ Day at the Capitol last Thursday (list of attendees).  Almost all of the 105 members of the Idaho Legislature were in attendance, as well as all of Idaho’s constitutional officers and several state agency representatives.

The highlight of the morning legislative briefing was a legislative leadership panel moderated by Dr. Jim Weatherby, which included Speaker of the House Scott Bedke, Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill, House Minority Leader John Rusche and Senate Minority Leader Michelle Stennett.  The panelists provided great insight on several issues, including transportation funding, local option taxation, and the Rangen water call.  At lunch city officials had an excellent opportunity to discuss issues with their legislators.

Thanks again for making this year’s City Officials’ Day at the Capitol a success!
