The National Association of Counties (NACo) recently announced the appointment of Carroll County Commissioner Dennis Frazier to serve on its Environment, Energy, and Land Use Policy Steering Committee.
NACo policy steering committee members are appointed by state associations and serve one-year terms.
Policy steering committees annually review and make recommendations on federal policy issues and legislation. They start the policy development process leading to the development of the American County Platform, which guides the county government message presented to the Administration, Congress, U.S. Courts, and the American public.
“I am honored to accept this nomination and represent Carroll County in this important committee,” Commissioner Frazier said. “Providing feedback and engaging others on these issues may impact policy decisions made in Washington and I look forward to working with representatives from other counties across the country.”
The Environment, Energy, and Land Use Policy Steering Committee is responsible for all matters pertaining to air, water, energy, and land use, including water resources/management, stormwater, pesticides, air quality standards, solid, hazardous, and nuclear waste handling, transport, and disposal, national energy policy, renewable/alternative energy, alternative fuel vehicles, energy facility siting, electricity utility restructuring, pipeline safety, oil spills, superfund/brownfields, eminent domain, land use, coastal management, oceans, parks and recreation.
