back to Public Policy


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.

2023 Policy Resolution Process

The National Black Caucus of State Legislators' 2023 Policy Resolutions process opened on April 29, 2022. These submissions are to be considered for ratification at our 46th Annual Legislative Conference to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 29, 2022 through December 3, 2022. The final deadline for submission of proposed resolutions was Friday September 16, 2022. For those who submitted resolutions, you will be contacted by our Policy Team if necessary as we prepare your submissions for the consideration process during our ALC in Las Vegas.
