Created in 2015, ASTA’s State Governmental Affairs Working Group is now the primary communications forum for information about state legislative and regulatory activities impacting the seed industry. We are pleased to have regular participation by the majority of state and regional associations, industry governmental affairs representatives, and related national associations.
Next month, the group will begin work on the 2018 legislative session action plan. Regular, state-by-state legislative reviews will continue beginning in January to coincide with the state legislative session bill filings. During the legislative sessions, the group holds monthly conference calls to review relevant bills and consider appropriate action. A comprehensive wrap-up session will be held at ASTA’s 2018 Policy and Leadership Conference in June in Washington, D.C.
Membership in the State Governmental Affairs Working Group is open to all ASTA members. For more information and to get involved, contact Pat Miller by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
