Committee work includes:
  • Reviewing and updating OASBO’s Legislative Platform every two years for review and approval by the OASBO Board;
  • Studying proposed legislation and recommending positions consistent with the OASBO’s Legislative Platform;
  • Being actively involved in promoting other member involvement with proposed legislation, their sponsors, members of the General Assembly and the Administration according to OASBO positions.
