Legislative Advocacy

Advocating for Public Power

Legislative activity at the state and federal level has the potential to impact municipal electric systems.  IMUA follows legislative activity closely in the statehouse and in Congress.  At the state level, protection of municipal rights and local control for members is paramount, as is ensuring that power resources continue to provide value and are not negatively impacted by energy or tax policy changes.  At the federal level, energy policy, transmission rates, tax policy and local control are among the issues IMUA follows, working closely with the American Public Power Association.
