Local Government Advisory Committee (LGAC)

Congressional and Intergovernmental Home

About the Local Government Advisory Committee

The Local Government Advisory Committee is a formal advisory committee chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act and has been in existence since 1993. The Committee is composed primarily of elected and appointed local officials, along with several state representatives, environmental interest groups, and labor interests from across the country. The LGAC provides advice and recommendations that assist the EPA in developing a stronger partnership with local governments through building state and local capacity to deliver environmental services and programs. The ultimate goal of the LGAC is to provide the citizens of the United States with more efficient and effective environmental protection at the community, state and federal level.

LGAC Members 

The Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) requires that advisory committee membership be balanced. The LGAC is unique in having members that are locally elected and appointed officials such as mayors, county executives, city managers, commissioners, and others that represent key interests of local governments.
