Legislative Committe Chair: June Feder, PhD
Federal Advocacy Coordinators: Maury Lacher, PhD & John Northman, PhD

The Legislative Committee (L/C) is the "political arm" of NYSPA. The primary purpose of the L/C is to seek enactment of legislation favorable to psychology and block legislative initiatives unfavorable to the profession. By working directly with governmental units responsible for implementing laws, the L/C also seeks to bring about changes in policy through regulations. The L/C works directly in collaboration with the NYSPA lobbyist.

Current Legislative Agenda:

The Legislative Committee meets five times each year. Discussion is lively, stimulating and at times even provocative. Meetings are held on Saturday mornings from 10-1. Meetings are open to any NYSPA member. Come to where the action is and help shape your professional future!

NYSPA has an active Legislative Committee which reviews bills and issues relating to psychology.
