Current MACo Policy Booklet & Archives
The Montana Association of Counties Policy Booklet is a compilation of various issues and/or beliefs, which members have identified as major concerns and goals of county government. These are organized in two sections: Committee Policy Statements and Resolutions. A “Policy Statement” provides guidance to staff, legislators, and the public on MACo’s position regarding possible legislation and/or issues that may arise during a legislative session and/or the Interim. A “Resolution” is a written motion that is beneficial to county government and is adopted by a deliberative assembly made up of MACo members. It proposes to amend the law to solve a problem and essentially becomes legislation.
Our legislative process is structured around the participation and involvement of all member counties. These policies have received the members’ endorsement at conventions and present the overall consensus of the MACo membership.
IMPORTANT NOTE: MACo Resolutions are NOT to be copied or distributed as support or opposition of any legislative bill without the prior consent of MACo Administration or a MACo member.
