Legislative Affairs

In Mississippi and Alabama, our mission is to establish and maintain reasonable statewide public policy regarding legislative, executive, judicial, and regulatory issues and to work on regional and federal issues which could have a significant impact on the industry.  In order to accomplish our goals, we maintain continuous contact with members of the legislature and staff.


The mission is accomplished through formulating policy and positions through the work of our general and technical committees, the Executive Committee and Governing Board, and by using the collective strength and influence of its member organizations to advocate these policies and positions.


Toward the fulfillment of this mission, the Association supports legislation and regulatory policies which enhance the development and growth of our industry in an environmentally safe and socially responsible manner.
