Legislative Committee

Membership
The Committee on Legislation is composed of elected members from each of the 29 PASA regions. Members are elected in the same manner, for the same term, and on the same cycle as the regional Board of Governors' members. From among its members, the PASA President appoints a chair and a vice chair.
 
Meetings
The Committee meets several times per year at the call of the chair. The Association reimburses travel expenses for two meetings per year. In addition, the committee meets via conference calls on Tuesday mornings during weeks when the General Assembly is in session. The purpose of the calls is to receive updated information on what is happening at the Capitol, discuss the issues, and raise questions. Following the call, members receive (via email) notes summarizing issues discussed on the call and share them with colleagues within their respective regions.
 
Responsibility of the Committee
The Committee studies and directs PASA positions on specific legislation consistent with the Association's Resolutions and any direction from the Board of Governors.
 
Responsibilities of Committee Members
* develop ongoing communication with the PASA members in their regions on legislative issues by bringing to their attention PASA legislative updates, soliciting their views on pending legislation and sharing those views with the full committee
* foster ongoing communication between PASA members in their regions and legislators by participating in PASA sponsored or co-sponsored "lobby day" activities, by inviting legislators to regional activities, and by coordinating back to school visits for legislators
* participate in conference calls, share conference call notes with colleagues, regularly access the PASA web site to gather the latest information, and  share information about PASA's advocacy work with regional colleagues
