Legislative

 

"If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem. It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can't fool all of the people all of the time."
Abraham Lincoln

 

"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty."  
Winston Churchill

  • Educate members legislatively
  • Engage and empower members to take action

  • Serve as a legislative resource for members
  • Support MSEA’s Mission Statement
  • Devote time and effort to fulfill the committee’s role

 

Legal Note:   MSEA is a tax-exempt labor union subject to IRS Code 501(c)(5).  To avoid putting our tax-exempt status at risk, MSEA does not endorse or provide any other kind support to candidates for public office in partisan races at either the state or federal level.  We do engage in lobbying on legislative issues that are related to our exempt purpose of being a labor union because IRS regulations allow this without jeopardizing our tax-exempt status.  IRC Section 501(c)(5);  IRS G.C.M. 34233 (Dec. 3 1969) (being involved in partisan politics results in an undue influence of such involvement on the narrower  exempt interest of the organization).
