MANY ISSUES WILL come before Congress between now and the LEAP Conference in mid-May. Republicans now control both the House and Senate, and this should make for an interesting legislative session! However, we don’t have a firm idea yet about what issues may be on the main Republican agenda and whether Congress will work with the administration. Much will depend on what moves forward in the next month or two. While there are many issues on which we could lobby, we do try to limit them to about four major topics for our visits to the Hill. Once we have a better picture of how some important issues (such as trade) play out, we’ll finalize this year’s lobby topics and post them on our website.
Below are some of the issues we are considering for this year’s LEAP Conference.
We always welcome suggestions for our annual lobby visits, so feel free to pass your ideas on to us. Please keep in mind that we need to avoid specific, local issues for our main topics, but delegates should definitely make those a priority when visiting members of Congress and make the best use of their time with them.
We have a lot to discuss at LEAP this year, and we look forward to a very exciting conference.
