Provision Would Undermine Ability to Engage Regulators
Adopted in response to congressional outrage at lavish spending for government conferences, the proposal would limit the ability of federal agencies to attend more than one conference or meeting hosted by nongovernmental groups. The amendment defines a conference as a meeting held for consultation, education, or discussion that entails travel costs and is not held at an agency facility.
The Association regularly invites government employees to events like the Annual Repair Symposium. Any limitations on attendance at these educational conferences would deprive regulators from using the Association as an important resource and deny ARSA members the opportunity to engage with government officials.
As lawmakers rush to complete end of year business, including postal reform, it is important that lawmakers hear about the negative consequences of this short-sighted proposal. Visit ARSAaction.org to urge your elected officials to ensure that citizens have access to regulators.
