Preemption by state and federal legislators is a major impediment to municipal officials. Interference from wider offices stands in the way of local officials fully responding to the needs of their constituents.

DMO has partnered with Family Values @ Work to provide Democratic municipal officials with a variety of resources to combat preemption. Preemption occurs over a variety of issues, and municipal officials share a common goal of regaining the agency to legislate for their towns and cities.

Together, we offer the files below to aid efforts to defeat preemptive measures and undo the damage preemption causes at the local level.
