The Legislative Affairs Committee strives to obtain and
relay pertinent legislative information to students of the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus.
This information may vary in scope from local, state, and national levels. This
committee also organizes an Advocacy Day for students to meet with their state
legislators and discuss legislative issues with them. All students are
encouraged to speak with their Student Senators for detailed information on
Legislative Affairs Committee events for the coming year.
