NYSAC Standing Committees To Convene in September
NYSAC's 13 Standing Committees are essential in the development of NYSAC's advocacy planning and efforts. They develop, discuss and adopt the series of resolutions that go before the full county delegation, and then become the basis of NYSAC's legislative program for the coming year.
The standing committees cover a range of county concerns including agriculture, children with special needs, economic development and environment, intergovernmental affairs, Medicaid and human services, gaming, public employee relations, public health, public safety, tax and finance, and transportation.
If you are interested in being a member of one of NYSAC's standing committees, visit www.nysac.org/committees.
