Purpose Statement

CSEA’s most historic victories have been won in the halls of our State Capitol. The Legislative Committee works to ensure that we continue to be victorious in our legislative efforts. The committee assists in the development and oversees the implementation of CSEA’s legislative agenda, researching and making recommendations on legislative resolutions, monitoring and lobbying legislation approved by the CSEA Board of Directors, and educating and mobilizing members to help achieve our legislative goals.

CSEA's Legislative Committee at Work

When members seek to change the law or create a new law using CSEA's resolution process, those resolutions go to the Legislative Committee for review.  The committee then makes recommendations regarding the resolution.  Here is a glimps into the Legislative Committee's work.
