THE SOCIETY'S PUBLIC ADVOCACY EFFORTS


Heading Text

This year, the Society Board of Directors has put into place its Legislative Plan, with a focus on bringing advocacy and awareness to three critical areas:


1. Robert Levinson Hostage Recovery and Hostage-Taking Accountability Act (S. 712/H.R. 1611)

2. The Equal COLA Act (H.R. 1254)

3. Reform of HR 218 - the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) (H.R. 1156 The LEOSA Reform Act)


We are asking all of our members to personally assist in these three areas by contacting your members of Congress once again on all of these issues. With a new Congress being sworn in this January, any bills previously before Congress that had not been enacted died and had to be reintroduced. Set forth below are summaries of the issues and bills that have been reintroduced. Downloadable sample letters to send to your members of Congress can be found within each topic's discussion. These letters should be personalized and can be mailed or sent through Congressional members’ individual websites.

Information will be sent continually to all members through the Scoop and separate email blasts with links to your members of Congress. We urge you to spend time communicating with your members of Congress regarding these important
issues, as well as other issues that are important to you. Please feel free to encourage family members and friends to advocate with Congress on these issues as well.

In addition to requesting that each of our members contact their members of Congress, the Society has sent out packets of information to the Chapter Chairs to enable them to arrange for members to pay personal visits to Congressional Offices this summer with these advocacy requests. As former and current FBI Agents, you have voices that your members of Congress want to hear from on these important issues this summer. Members of Congress spend more time in their districts and states during August and the summer break. This is a great time to connect with them and their office staff.

If you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at nancy.savage@socxfbi.org.

Thank you for joining the voice of the Society!
