What Are Legislative Priorities?
Legislative priorities are set each year by the board, based on recommendations from the Legislation Committee. The priorities apply only to the advocacy work we do in the legislature. The issues for education and advocacy -- the priorities set every two years at the convention -- inform our legislative priorities. However, they are broader, in that they include issues on which we are committing to work more broadly -- community education, member education, advocacy that may be broader than just the legislature.
In addition, the legislative priorities take into account our reading of what we think are going to be "hot" issues in the legislature in a given year.
