The Legislative Process and You: How it Works and How to Make a Difference [webinar video]

Anyone who remembers Schoolhouse Rock’s “How a Bill Becomes a Law” knows that the process is long, arduous and frustrating. That’s the bad news. The good news is that library advocates have opportunities to make a difference at every step of the way. In this webinar video Stephanie Vance gives you the insider secrets on using the legislative process to your advantage. She shows you how to be engaged at every point — from introduction and referral to conference committee — as well as the key things you should know about any legislative arena before diving in. This video offers a checklist and work plan to implement these ideas right away – and make a positive difference for libraries!

Jacob Roberts is the communications specialist for the ALA Washington Office.
