Let Cities Work.

Repeatedly, we see state lawmakers discuss the role of local authority, trying to shift many hometown responsibilities to the state. One-size-fits-all proposals by the Legislature will not fix or help our neighborhoods meet new challenges nor create opportunities. The 2018 Legislative session is here and our message to the legislature must not waver.

Let cities work.

Municipal officials must stand together for the right of our communities to determine their own destinies. Join me in taking action now to confront and defeat legislative attacks against Home Rule.

Learn more about each of these actions by clicking on the "Take Action" icon below. You can also access talking points to help guide your discussions with constituents, colleagues and state lawmakers.

Remember, we need HOME RULE HEROES in our fight to #LetCitiesWork.


In August, the League's membership adopted its 2018 Legislative Action Agenda. The top priority adopted is the defense of Home Rule.

Local Self Government

Local Self-Government

The Florida League of Cities seeks to strengthen and protect the fundamental concept of local self- government, and will OPPOSE legislative efforts to impede the constitutional right Floridians have enjoyed for nearly 50 years to govern themselves under municipal Home Rule powers. Additionally, the Florida League of Cities OPPOSES the Legislature’s persistent intrusion into local finances, which are necessary to provide financial stability and essential services uniquely required by municipal residents and local businesses.


Now is the time to get engaged. Now is the time to take action.
