ASCE Legislative Committee - Volunteers Needed

Volunteer Needs

ASCE Seattle Section is searching for volunteers to assist with the Legislative Affairs Committee. The level of Involvement can vary and and can include providing engineering judgement on current legislative issues to assisting with lobbying.

The new Committee Chairperson is Savannah Linders and the new State Advocacy Captain is Dr. Conrad Felice.

Below is a description of the work that the Legislative Committee participates in.

The Legislative Committee functions in the political arena. The committee can become active in federal, state, county or other governmental issues that are of interest to the profession (such as university engineering budget considerations, issues that affect the practice of or employment of civil engineers, and environmental issues of significance to the profession). The committee is responsible for disseminating information from the AELC pertaining to state legislation. In recent years, the chair of the Legislative Committee has also been the AELC representative. If they are different, the Legislative Committee chair is an alternate to the AELC and shall be responsible for keeping abreast of current activities of the AELC.

The committee reviews proposed legislation and comments on it with regards to its effect on the civil engineering profession. The committee may request the Board take an official stance on certain legislation that is being proposed as appropriate. The committee and its members may also be called upon to testify at Legislative hearings or for other governmental committees (it must be noted that if such testimony is not previously approved by the Board or general membership, such testimony cannot represent the official position of the Seattle Section and is as an individual). The committee should work toward establishing a key contact group of members of the Society who have contacts with elected officials and who would be available to communicate the position of the Section. The committee is generally active prior to and during the sessions of the state legislature. The committee at times seeks the advice of other Section committees that may be more versed on a particular legislation topic. The committee typically sends at least one representative to the Society's annual Legislative Fly-In in Washington D.C.
