empty-desksThe National Black Caucus of State Legislators (NBCSL) has 15 policy committees (see list) composed of NBCSL members and legislative staff. These committees meet to exchange ideas, network, and find solutions to issues facing all Americans.

The policy committees also serve an important function in the policy resolution process. Legislators deliberate and vote on resolutions, which must pass out of policy committees before they can be ratified by the full membership body at the Annual Legislative Conference.  Committees are also responsible for submitting model legislation for NBCSL members.
