The 2013 AASA Legislative Agenda (PDF) is shaped by recommendations on federal policy issues compiled annually by the Committee on Federal Policy and Legislation, which is comprised of the AASA Executive Committee. The Executive Committee recommendations are presented to the AASA Governing Board twice annually for approval. Each legislative position sunsets annually, but may be carried forward if determined by the committee. Act on the AASA Legislative Agenda by joining (members only) the AASA Legislative Corps. Just send an e-mail with your name and e-mail address to Noelle Ellerson, assistant director, policy analysis and advocacy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
