|1. Examine the laws governing annexations by municipalities, identifying problems and issues to assure fairness to all parties.|
|2. Study the need to expand cities' local option sales tax to deal with problems of gangs and urban crime, homelessness, and other urban problems.|
|3. Examine the need for legislation giving municipalities explicit authority to regulate the public consumption of alcohol and smoking in public places.|
|4. Conduct active oversight of agencies under the committee's jurisdiction, including a study of mandated reports to the legislature and legislative agencies. The study should consist of a review of the legislative reporting requirements of all agencies to identify areas where reporting obligations could be streamlined and agency accountability improved.
