Inland Action Talking Points for Leg Discussion

November 12, 2019

  • Review draft schedule.
    • The dates for trips are hypothetical until we get legislative calendars.
    • Washington, D.C., platform must be final a month prior to trip.
    • Congressional staff will be assisting with review of items and scheduling meetings.
  • Need to work on Federal and State issues simultaneously. Less than two months between trips. Last year’s Sacramento trip was too late in session for us to have a meaningful impact.
  • Members should tell staff if they have resources that can help IA on our trips; i.e., employees or advocates in Washington, D.C./Sacramento who could help with understanding issues, assist with appointments, provide a briefing on what to expect in our meetings.
  • Issues should be well thought out, concisely described, and contain supportive details.
  • Committees need to tell staff what meetings would be beneficial beyond our legislative delegation; i.e., Committee Chairs, committee staff, agency staff, etc. (Establish a course for pursuing our issues.)
  • Staff will contact the same facility for reception as last year as soon as a date is established.
