NBCSL 41st Annual Legislative Conference    November 30-December 3, 2017    JW Marriott Indianapolis, Indianapolis
Resolutions embody NBCSL’s core values, promoting equal access to America’s opportunities and promises. Resolutions draw attention to a particular policy problem and offer solutions; they serve as the basis for both state and federal legislation and action, and have often resulted in enacted laws, policies, and programs.

Each year, our legislative members deliberate over resolutions that have been submitted in advance of the Annual Legislative Conference. All resolutions ratified by the full body are disseminated to NBCSL’s state, federal, corporate, and non-profit partners in order to effect change.

Policy Resolution Process

The 2018 Policy Resolutions process is open. The 2018 Resolution Submission Instructions document assists in completing the Policy Resolutions E-Form and provides sample resolutions. There are two handy guides (10 Simple Steps Outline and a Flowchart) summarizing the resolutions process. Finally, the NBCSL Policy Procedures packet is also posted, which explains the entire policy resolutions process in detail.
