The foundation of America’s democracy requires citizens to express their views and concerns with policymakers. Our local, state and federal officials actively depend on advice from constituents to successfully craft and pass legislation that facilitates growth of the nation and local communities. With the variety of issues currently affecting our industry, it is more important than ever to educate policymakers on the real-life impact of proposed legislation.
In developing positions on pending legislation, elected officials listen closely to the constituents whom they know and trust. As such, it is useful to build solid relationships with your elected officials before legislation is considered.
