State Legislative Committee

The focus of the State Legislative Affairs Committee is to track and advise on legislation at the state level impacting the media industry.  The Committee will advocate for the advancement of laws that further First Amendment concerns and access to government information, and defend against laws that minimize First Amendment rights or decrease access to government information.  In working on legislative matters, it will reach out to groups and organizations outside of the media industry to build broader coalitions.  On these webpages, the Committee will maintain a database of information -- links to proposed bills, existing statutes, talking points and articles -- on state legislative matters for MLRC members.
