Title

A RESOLUTION concerning the regional policy committee work program for 2021.

Body

                     WHEREAS, the King County Charter establishes regional committees to develop, recommend and review regional policies and plans for consideration by the metropolitan King County council, one of which is the regional policy committee, and

                     WHEREAS, the charter establishes the subject matter areas for the regional policy committee to be those countywide plans and policies included in the committee's work program, and

                     WHEREAS, the charter and K.C.C. 1.24.065 establish timeframes for the legislative review process for these countywide plans and policies within the subject matter adopted by the regional policy committee, and

                     WHEREAS, K.C.C. 1.24.065.I. and past practices have provided for the regional policy committee to consider, examine and comment on pending issues that are not countywide policies or plans within its subject matter and therefore are not subject to the mandatory review process, and

                     WHEREAS, the regional policy committee and King County council are committed to effective and efficient legislative review processes that respect the charter-mandated legislative process for the review of countywide plans and policies, and

                     WHEREAS, the regional policy committee has expressed interest in examining emergent and enduring issues that are of countywide significance and may be a subject of the committee’s future policy development efforts;

                     NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the King County regional policy committee:

                     The regional policy committee work program, dated January 13, 2021, Attachment A to this resolution, is hereby approved.  The work program shall remain in

effect until it is superseded by a work program that is adopted by a resolution of the regional policy committee.
