Home Rule for the 21st Century
In January, the National League of Cities is publishing Principles of Home Rule for the Twenty-First Century, a new vision for local government legal authority and relationship to states. This legal framework, which include a model constitutional home rule article and commentary, is the first comprehensive effort since 1953 to re-image home rule, and is intended to serve as the foundation for meaningful law reform within the states. This webinar will describe the origins of this model constitutional article in light of the history of home rule reform; explain the substance and details of the new approach to home rule; and explore possibilities for change moving forward.
