Each year, IAC’s Legislative Committee sets the association’s state legislative priorities. These priorities, adopted with the input of policy committees and the membership at the IAC Annual Conference, help to guide IAC’s efforts throughout the year.
Fourteen resolutions were presented to IAC’s policy committees at the Annual Conference in Boise. Out of the fourteen resolutions presented in the policy committees, nine were supported and moved out of the policy committees. The remaining nine resolutions were reviewed by the IAC Legislative Committee and were recommended for adoption by the general membership. The membership reviewed each resolution and voted to support all nine resolutions.
On October 24, the IAC Legislative Committee met to establish IAC’s priorities for the 2018 legislative session. According to the IAC bylaws (Article VIII, Section 4, Subsection A), the Legislative Committee shall recommend a legislative package not to exceed ten legislative resolutions. Each resolution was discussed by the committee and it was determined that they would move forward on eight resolutions and voted to table one resolution until more information could be gathered.
