TCSA 2017 Legislative Platform

The association and its affiliates each year during the TCSA Annual Fall Conference & Trade Show adopt a legislative platform as a guide to staff and members for the coming session of the Tennessee General Assembly. 

The TCSA membership - with input from its board and the three affiliate membership - adopted the current platform on October 14, 2016.

General Legislative Policy Statement

The Tennessee County Services Association, and its affiliates - the Association of County Mayors of Tennessee, Tennessee County Commissioners Association, and Tennessee County Highway Officials Association - generally oppose legislation which has the effect of imposing additional unfunded mandates on Tennessee's 95 county governments, or which further erodes the narrow tax base currently available to Tennessee counties.  Further, county associations will defend against intrusions into the already limited local autonomy vested in county governments.  TCSA will support the legislative platforms of its affiliates when they promote the mutual missions of our affiliate associations.
