Learn about NEARI's lobbying efforts
Your organization practices active politics not only in the voting booth but also before the RI General Assembly. We have registered lobbyists who attend daily, but members like you are called upon at times to testify before committees or lobby your legislators from home.
Our issues are laid out in the annual NEARI Legislative Program. The program is based on the NEARI Continuing Resolutions, representing the fundamental beliefs and values guiding our organization. Both are reviewed and revised annually by local and state leaders and adopted at the October Delegate Assembly meeting.
