MNLA is intensively involved in lobbying on behalf of Michigan’s Green Industry. The Board of Directors establishes policy and the Executive Committee serves as the Association’s Legislative Committee. This Legislative Committee has oversight on positions taken by the MNLA, while the Executive Director oversees and implements MNLA’s lobbying strategy & activities and activates the grass-roots support system.
A retained multi-client Lobbyist, Governmental Consulting Services, Inc. (GCSI), keeps a daily watch on Bills and Regulations that could impact the Green Industry and provides advice on strategy to support or oppose when intervention is needed. Through GCSI, MNLA maintains a daily presence at the Capitol and they assist us with our annual Legislative Day and communications with the Legislature.
In addition, GCSI provides a Weekly Legislative Update on all activities in the Legislature and within State Government to keep MNLA’s Executive Director and Board of Directors apprised on all things legislative and regulatory.
The Legislative Action Center is broken into four sections—Legislative Day, Lighthouse Fund, MNLA Lobby Team, and Find Your Legislator—for ease in finding the information you need. In each section you’ll find topics, information, and additional resources to help your Green Industry Business thrive and remain in compliance.
