Legislative Committee

  • Do you want to be involved with a dynamic group of individuals making proactive changes using the legislative process? 
  • Do you like to review ideas that can help shape our industry and make a difference?
  • Do you like to talk to legislators and be a part of our great democracy?
  • Do you like helping others understand the work LSPs and other environmental professionals perform cleaning up the Commonwealth? 

If so, then you need to be a member of the Legislative Committee!

The LSPA’s Legislative Committee is charged with monitoring and keeping LSPA leadership informed of legislation that affects and impacts our members and our profession.   The committee, along with the LSPA Board, advocates on behalf of the LSPA and its members, including working to develop legislation, testifying in person and in writing, meeting with and advising legislators, and communicating on topics of interest. 

In addition, the committee will endeavor to inform our membership using a variety of means (e.g. social media, blog posts, etc.) concerning key legislative initiatives.  In this way, members may choose to participate in LSPA advocacy and/or engage on an individual basis with their respective State legislators.   

The LSPA’s Legislative Committee holds a one-hour monthly conference call on the last Friday of each month. The committee also meets in person for one hour prior to the September, November, January, February, and April LSPA Monthly Membership Meetings. Contact the Committee Chair for additional information. Come help us make a difference!
