Benefits of NATaT

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.
  • NATaT’s Weekly Legislative Updates:
    Each Monday, NATaT sends a “Week in Review” report congressional and federal agency action of of interest to NATaT members. Also included in that email is an outlook of what to expect in Congress that week and a detailed list of relevant congressional hearings.
  • 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.
