State Mandating of Local Expenditures. In Brief.
Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations, Washington, DC.
State mandates--constitutional, statutory, or administrative actions that either limit or place requirements on local governments--are often opposed because they are not reimbursed or because they restrict the decision-making authority of local government officials. This report of the Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations examines the state role in mandating local actions. It also highlights the experience of one state, California, and explains the commission's eight-point case for its policy of deliberate restraint. An extensive appendix lists state mandates that govern local personnel, police, fire, environmental protection, education, and social services. (Author/LD)
