The WEF Government Affairs  Committee tracks legislative and regulatory efforts with respect to water and other environmental issues on the national level, informing members and providing education about our profession to legislators and regulatory officials. The Member Association Subcommittee is tasked with increasing communication with respect to federal issues and local impacts. We also want to be aware of local issues that may inform other MAs about regulatory trends. The Webinar will provide an update on Washington legislative and regulatory issues, including funding. Four MAs will report on regional, issues and initiatives. We intend to establish this as a quarterly update and request different MAs to provide regional updates.
