The mission of the CCBE Legislative Committee is to review and take positions on pending legislation and to initiate legislation. All such efforts are guided by the framework set forth in the policy platform
. The committee reports to the CCBE Executive Committee, Board of Directors and general membership.
The committee reviews all state and federal legislation that may impact county members and county offices of education and applies the CCBE organizational Policy Platform
to help focus the organization’s lobbying efforts on behalf of county boards of education at the state and federal level. The positions taken by the committee become the basis for determining the advocacy efforts of the organization, CCBE’s Leadership and staff. In addition, the Legislative Committee is responsible for conducting the preliminary selection process for CCBE’s Outstanding Legislator Award.
