Legislative Outreach Program

FASNY Legislative Outreach Program 2019

 

FASNY has just concluded the 85th Annual Legislative Conference in Albany by passing a legislative agenda with seven items for the 2019 legislative session. To promote the new legislative agenda, FASNY is continuing its Legislative Outreach Program. The program was started in 2008 and has been extremely successful in bringing the legislative agenda back to the Sectionals from Albany.

The primary focus of the program will continue to be educational meetings relating to legislation affecting the volunteer fire service. The meetings usually last anywhere from 90 to 120 minutes and will cover the FASNY Legislative Agenda as well as issues of interest to the sponsoring Sectionals.

Paul Zuber, Jill Scalzo and Daniel Cain from DKC Associates, FASNY’s legislative representatives, will be on hand along with FASNY Legislative Committee members to facilitate the program. State legislators will be on hand to comment and listen to the fire service legislative needs. FASNY will encourage our members to sign up for the ENGAGE legislative alert program.
