ITLA FYI



Posted by: Avery Roberts on Jan 29, 2020

The Idaho Legislature is now in its fourth week. The administrative rules review process is nearly completed. Print hearings, bill hearings, and presentations from state agencies are now the major focus for most standing committees.

You Represent Your Clients in the Court Room, Help Us Represent Them in the Legislature

Each legislative session, we work to promote a fair and effective civil justice system for all Idahoans —individuals, families, patients, workers, consumers, and your clients. You play a crucial role in that work.

Help us create a unified voice in the legislative process. Please consider attending one or both events.

ITLA Lobby Day - Come to the State Capitol Wednesday, February 19th and meet with members of Idaho Legislature about issues important to your clients and your practice. Lobby Day is an effective way to communicate directly with state lawmakers while allowing you the opportunity to network with your colleagues. No past lobbying experience is necessary. Register here.

ITLA Legislative Reception - Join the 7th Amendment Advocates and Idaho Lawmakers to celebrate our U.S. Constitution and the Idaho State Constitution Thursday, February 27th from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Grove Hotel. Delicious food and beverages will be provided. RSVP here.

If you are interested in learning more about what’s happening in the statehouse:

We appreciate your willingness to participate in this work. Please give us a call at (208) 345-1890 or send an email to itla@itla.org if you have any questions.
