Legislative Position Forms (LPFs) are critical to NJSBA’s Legislative Department because these forms initiate the legislative process.
Completing Legislative Position Forms
Sections and committees are encouraged to provide completed LPFs. The bill needs to meet the NJSBA’s Criteria for Reviewing Legislation which can be found here. The information provided on these forms are reviewed by the Legislative Committee, Board of Trustees and/or Executive Committee. They are also used to create letters to bill sponsors, position statements, among other things. Incomplete LPFs may cause delays in the legislative process and, in worse case scenarios, key legislation may be overlooked if a section or committee fails to clearly express the impact that a specific bill or rule proposal may have on their area of practice. Note, all Legislative Position Forms are confidential and for internal use only – please do not circulate the forms to anyone outside the NJSBA entities.
