Help Set ASLA's Legislative Agenda!
ASLA is seeking input from its members to determine federal legislative agenda and state advocacy activities for 2021-2022. Take this 5 minute survey to tell us what policy issues matter to you. Based on feedback received last year, federal priorities for 2019-2020 are transportation planning and design, stormwater management, community and national parks, and planning for climate change and resilience, all with an emphasis on equity and environmental justice.
However, only 16 practitioners from Connecticut shared their opinion last year among the 1,100 responses received. Help us double this record by not only taking this survey, but by encouraging your friends, colleagues, chapter members, and all landscape architects to participate. Every voice matters, and we want to make sure as many people participate as possible.
Why does your input matter? ASLA uses your response to prioritize bills in the House of Representatives and Senate for targeted advocacy efforts. ASLA Government Affairs staff then research the legislation, prepare fact sheets on the issue, identify lawmakers favorable to the legislation, and arrange advocacy meetings for local chapter delegations. Recent victories have included the permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund as well as the introduction of the Living Shorelines Act sponsored by Senator Murphy and written with support from ASLA.
We thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts. Please complete your survey by Friday, May 15. With your input, ASLA will continue to succeed in our mission to advocate for you and your profession. ASLA's Government Affairs team thanks you in advance for your participation.
