State and Local Legislative Committee and Programs

The Legislation Committee coordinates the development of Virginia PTA’s Legislation Program, provides the latest information on pending legislation dealing with issues of concern, and directs advocacy efforts to pass or defeat legislation as directed by the Legislation Program approved by local units and convention resolutions.

Locally, the legislative committee is familiar with the  Virginia PTA Legislation Program, monitors School Board and Board of Supervisors meetings, attends Leadership Training, District Legislation meetings and workshops, and contacts legislators. The legislative committee also has the local responsiblity to compile and send any suggestions for State Preliminary Proposed Legislation Program (PPLP) sent to the state chairman by March 1st each year.
