Breakdown of the positions available

September 17, 2012

The job of the legislative committee was to prioritize the issues that TML would engage in. I’ve lifted the definitions of these levels of support from their most recent document describing them.

Here are those levels of support:

1. Seek Introduction and Passage – for these initiatives, the committee recommended that the League draft appropriate legislation, seek a sponsor for that legislation, and actively pursue passage of such legislation by providing testimony and through other means.

2. Support – for these initiatives, the committee recommended thtat the Leauge actively attempt to obtain passage of the appropriate legislation if it is introduced by some other entity.

3. Endorse – for these initiatives, the committee recommended that TML make its support known as time allows.

4. Oppose – for these initiatives, the committee recommended that the League actively and vigorously oppose the passage of related legislation.

5. Take No Position – for these initiatives, the committee recommended that the League take no position or no action on related legislation.

You can probably tell that there is a lot of difference between these levels of support. I believe there was only one issue which got the “Seek introduction and passage”. I may get back to that as time allows.

However, to start, I wanted to be able to show the various levels and how they represent investments of time and energy by TML.

The next several posts will be things that I thought were interesting and think you might too. If not, I’ll apologize in advance for boring you. 🙂 I’m going to assume that since you’re reading this blog, that these things might be of some interest to you.
