LTAP State and Local Government


The LTAP state and local government course is intended to introduce public works employees to the different levels of government, explain citizen participation in government and identify the institutions of state government and how they impact public works and infrastructure. Participants will discuss the structure and types of local government, how they cooperatively provide services, and who has the most control over local government and why. Participants will learn the difference between public policy and law, and to describe and differentiate the factors that cause fiscal stress in state and local governments.

Participants will interact with web sites during the course to learn about programs available in the new Bi-Partisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), who is eligible, and how these programs can improve road safety in their community.
