Capitol Hill Day 2014
Join us for Capitol Hill Day 2014
IACLEA heads to Washington, D.C. on March 27th to make our voices heard on Capitol Hill. This year we will focus on the Equity in Benefits Act (the measure that would allow sworn officers at private campuses to be eligible for death benefits much as their publically employed peers are), which has been introduced in the House by the entire Massachusetts delegation and will be introduced in the Senate by Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island. We will likely add other key industry issues to our legislative agenda, as Capitol Hill Day approaches.
Join us as we support campus public safety legislation in meetings with key Congressional committee members and staff. The day-long event will culminate with the presentation of the annual Congressional Champion Award. With keen competition for federal dollars, it is critical for IACLEA members to make a strong showing to represent the interests of campus public safety on Capitol Hill. View the tentative schedule - please note this is subject to change.

Members of IACLEA’s Government Relations Committee will be available all day for consultation and advice. Extra printed material and debriefing documents will also be available at IACLEA’s Capitol HQ. Your commitment to support IACLEA’s public policy agenda is the most visible part of our community effort in bringing important issues to the attention of policy makers. We will also have reserved Capitol tours and Committee hearing information available for your down times, or if you wish to bring your families.
