Any legislation that limits further home rule of municipalities in this state is detrimental to the growth of the state. This bill would prohibit municipalities from designating themselves as sanctuaries for undocumented immigrants looking to establish a permanent resident status in the U.S. It would create an unfunded mandate for those municipalities to execute federal law with already strained financial resources. We are opposed to this legislation.
