Key Issues

Each year the PPC establishes key issues that become the focal points of the Institute’s engagement with congressional decision makers, the administration, and state and local officials. The key issues provide the supporting pillars of the Congressional Visits Day program, drive panel sessions at our annual forums, underpin our state-level advocacy efforts, and form the basis of smaller focused events and activities.
