Legislative Committee

The Legislative Committee deals with proposals for state and federal legislation which relate to the improvement of justice.

The Legislative Committee meets from September through November and presents its legislative recommendations to the Board of Governors for action in December of each year. Proposed legislation is typically sent out for comment to any other Section or organization that would be affected so that the Legislative Committee's process is as well-vetted as possible.
