DISCUSSION
The Annual Conference of the League of California Cities will be held virtually on October 7-9, 2020. At the August 5, 2020 City Council Meeting, Councilmember Garfield and Councilmember Jenny McAdams were selected to serve as primary and alternate delegates, respectively, for the Conference General Assembly. 
 
The Conference General Assembly will be convened, virtually, on Friday, October 9, 2020 at 11:00am, to consider resolution that has been brought forward:
 
Resolution 1 – Amendment of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 to Require Social Media Companies to Remove Material Which Promote Criminal Activities.
 
The Annual Conference Resolutions Packet containing details regarding the resolution is included here for reference as an attachment to this agenda report. 
 
Should the City Council provide no direction regarding the resolution, the City delegate or alternate will vote as recommended by the League. The League’s position will be determined through a policy committee review and vote at the conference, which will take place prior to the convening of the General Assembly. The delegate or alternate will also have the ability to vote in an alternative manner, based upon their own good judgment, if overriding information to the contrary is presented between the time of the City Council’s direction, and the convening of the General Assembly.
