We know our legislative members face time constraints and a saturated information environment. That’s why our seasoned policy experts have developed model legislation comprising of the crucial components of a successful law, such as expertise, consistency and conformity, to ensure our members have what they need to enact policy in their states. Each year, NBCSL asks its Legislative members to submit bills they have introduced, sponsored, and successfully passed in their respective state legislatures. From those submissions, a selected set is presented by sponsor(s) at our Annual Legislative Conference and then featured as examples of Model Legislation on this platform.
