UMA Leadership


Legislative and Regulatory Committee

Committee Description
When it becomes obvious that an issue must be addressed either legislatively or through the rulemaking process, the matter is brought before UMA's Legislative and Regulatory Committee. The committee determines the priority level the issue is given and what action is warranted based on its perceived effect to the industry. With the advice and counsel of the government affairs staff, the committee examines various action plans and decides on the approach that is most likely to lead to a successful outcome. The committee then refers the proposal to UMA's full Board of Directors for ratification. This committee is one of UMA’s most active and communicates regularly. Besides monitoring state legislative and regulatory activities, the committee members spend much personal time to help UMA achieve its public policy objectives.
