State Government Affairs

The State Government Affairs Department plays an extensive, broad-based role on behalf of AFSA members by comprehensively addressing legislative and regulatory issues on the state level. In addition to direct advocacy, where appropriate, the department monitors virtually all relevant legislation and regulations for its members, updating them on state issues via ongoing legislative reporting, enacted law reports, constant e-mail communication, and calls on priority issues. The department constantly develops issues management materials, including but not limited to talking points, issue briefs, white papers, and 50-state surveys. SGA also holds quarterly state association executive briefings; regular in-person meetings to address our members’ highest priorities; and an annual State Government Affairs and Legal Issues Forum jointly with state regulators. Members can also access customized comprehensive state legislative and regulatory tracking 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world through AFSA*Track at KSE Focus®.
