• The Division of Local Mandates (DLM) responds to requests to determine whether the Local Mandate Law applies to various state actions with the potential to impose costs on Massachusetts cities and towns, and determines the local cost impact, if any. Approximately 70% of these requests come from municipal officials. While most of the remainder originates from the Legislature, a number come from state administrative agencies.
