Symposium: Legislative Day Wrap Up
March 19, 2014
A light, steady rain could not dampen the enthusiasm of ARSA members in Washington today. Legislative Day attendees crisscrossed Capitol Hill, piling into the elevators of the various House and Senate office buildings to directly engage staff and members of congress on key issues for the aviation maintenance industry.
After a morning kick-off and panel discussion on industry legislative priorities, members conducted 37 meetings with congressional leaders, including Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Reps. Martha Roby (R-Ala.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.). ARSA members educated Congress on workforce development issues, the importance of effective government/industry relationships, and the economic impact of international MRO operations.
ARSA supports its members in all of their legislative advocacy by providing them with comprehensive priorities for each congressional session. We are standing by to help you connect with your lawmakers.
