The NATaT's valuable membership benefits include:
Lobbying for Grassroots Governments in Washington, DC:
Regulations and mandates developed in Washington, DC are often excessive, costly, and burdensome to smaller communities. NATaT works to ensure that lawmakers and Federal agencies take into consideration the resources and capacities of smaller governments during the development phases of the rules and legislation. NATaT has been instrumental in getting legislation passed to ensure that Federal agencies involve grassroots governments in the regulatory process.
Subscription to NATaT's Washington Report and View from Washington:
The NATaT's newsletter, the Washington Report, and its column, the View from Washington, are published throughout the year and concentrate on legislative issues of importance to small governments.
NATaT's Email Legislative Alerts:
NATaT's email legislative alerts keep you informed of legislative action that requires a timely grassroots response.
Access to NATaT staff That Can Answer Your Many Questions: Membership in NATaT affords you access to a staff that is knowledgeable and experienced on a wide variety of topics and issues of concern to smaller local governments.
