Legislative Policy Committee Report, March 2015
The LPC Chair reviews all pending legislation on Friday of each week to see which bills affect Clerks and then sends those bills on to committee members for review. The committee meets each week by conference call on Tuesday to review all new legislation and to develop a position on each bill for MTCCA. Depending on the importance of the bill, the committee may send a survey to all Clerks via the Clerks email network for their individual views on each bill we are reviewing. Depending on the public hearing schedule for the bills, Clerks will have from 2 to 7 days to respond to the survey. We also contact legislators, MMA staff, State Agency Staff and others to answer questions for us and to help us fully understand the impact of each bill. The committee meets again the following Tuesday to examine the results of the survey and to develop testimony for the public hearing. Presenting testimony at a public hearing is a very rewarding experience.
New Information about Election-Workers-Reporting-and-Withholding
See New Information about Election-Workers-Reporting-and-Withholding. The paragraph under “reporting requirements” in the document addresses the withholding thresholds. Since the IRS rules govern in this area it is probably best for clerks to get this information straight from the source. You can direct questions to Bob Westhoven at the IRS. His contact info is : (207) 784-6988 or Robert.firstname.lastname@example.org
