The Legislative Planning Committee manages the Board’s legislative functions.
Pursuant to direction from the Board and the annually updated legislative principles
approved by the Board, the Committee reviews and monitors all legislative bills filed
each legislative session that could affect the way districts conduct business. In this
regard, the Committee tracks all bills that are filed during the session and reviews them
for potential impact on districts. If necessary, the Committee will provide educational
support to the legislature and testify before committees on pertinent bills. After each
session, the Committee will typically review the session and the various new laws at the
AWBD annual conference. In addition, the Committee conducts the regular lunch on
the lawn at the Capitol.
