Title
Substitute resolution relating to the composition of the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission.
Analysis
This resolution:

1.

3. In the event the state legislature does not pass legislation changing the composition of a regional planning commission containing a city of the first class such that membership is proportional to county populations, urges Milwaukee County to withdraw from membership and participation in the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission
