INCOG advocates for legislative issues that affect local governments. On the state level, the Coalition of Tulsa Area Governments (CTAG), comprised of thirteen local governments, adopts a legislative slate and advocates for its enactment. Staff maintains a continuing dialog with both state and federal elected officials to advance issues of importance to the region.
INCOG supports CTAG by providing staff assistance to draft bills, monitor legislation, and advocate for issues which directly affect CTAG member governments. INCOG works to
create and broaden alliances with other Oklahoma governments and the private sector on selected legislative issues.
INCOG is also an active participant in the regional One Voice state and federal legislative agenda in cooperation with area chambers of commerce and local governments. The INCOG Board of Directors votes annually to endorse the One Voice legislative agenda.
Members of CTAG include: Bixby, Broken Arrow, Claremore, Collinsville, Coweta, Glenpool, Jenks, Mannford, Owasso,
Sand Springs, Sapulpa, Skiatook, Tulsa,
Tulsa County, and INCOG.
