As our communities and state continue to grapple with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that our lawmakers come together to pass a large bonding bill. One important way that your city can help nudge lawmakers in that direction is by passing a resolution affirming your city’s support for a bonding bill.

Due to legal requirements regarding a previously scheduled bond sale, the Legislature cannot pass a new bonding bill during its August special session (which began today). However, we remain hopeful that the bonding bill will be a top priority in the next special session, which is anticipated to be held in mid-September.

Take Action Now!
At an upcoming City Council meeting (and definitely before September), please pass a resolution in support of a bonding bill. You can use this sample resolution as a guide.
