UEA Resolutions

They are helpful to the UEA Legislative team and also help guide the UEA Board of Directors in between sessions of the House of Delegates.

UEA Legislative Program

The Legislative Program, which includes the Legislative Platform, Support Positions, and Priorities, requires annual adoption by the House of Delegates. The Legislative Platform is a broad, comprehensive statement of actions that legislation must accomplish. It is reviewed and updated annually, guiding and directing the UEA Legislative Team throughout each Legislative Session. The Support Positions indicate items the UEA will support through legislation if introduced; contingent on the nature of specific bills. The Legislative Priorities are those deemed by our membership to be the most important focus of the upcoming Legislative Session. They are more limited than the entire platform; ambitious but also reasonable within our resources and circumstances.
