A list of legislative priorities for 2012 were compiled from past Iowa City City Council discussions to be considered by councilors at their Dec. 6 work session, according to the City Council packet.

The list was compiled by members of the Metropolitan Coalition with representatives from each of the 10 Iowa League of Cities.

The list is generally affirmed by Iowa City officials, and more points are added through discussion, said Councilor Regenia Bailey.

Iowa City representatives brought up points discussed by city councilors last January, said City Councilor Mike Wright.

City Councilor Connie Champion said the Supreme Court decision that changed co-operative housing from commercial to residential classification would be a top priority for councilors, similar to discussion about condominiums last year. She said it would be discussed further over the course of the year.

Other topics include tax-increment financing preservation, increase in road taxes, and extension of the 6 percent historic tax.
