2 |Fees for .Gov Website Domains to Increase

Following the recommendation of the General Services Administration, the cost of maintaining a .gov domain registration and renewal will increase from $125 per year to $400 per year beginning January 1st, 2017. The .gov domain name extension is only available to registered websites of governmental entities in the United States, including federal, state, local and tribal governments.

There are some jurisdictions whose renewal period (90-day window) may hit before the end of this year. If this applies to your jurisdiction, you should take advantage of that renewal as GSA will honor the existing $125 per year price.

3 |Candidate Questionnaires are Available

In preparation for this upcoming November, the League has updated its webpage containing candidate questionnaires received from federal and state office candidates. While the League does not endorse candidates, we do want to share this information with you so that you may form your own judgment based on candidates’ policy positions to local issues. In total, the League received responses from more than 45% of all candidates running for state and federal office.

If you have any questions about these candidates’ positions on local issues, we encourage you to contact them directly. As the League receives more questionnaires over the course of the next month, they will be posted. For more information about the candidate questionnaire, please contact Cindy Green.
