Irrigation Association

Government Affairs Committee

The Government Affairs Committee monitors current and proposed laws and regulations affecting the irrigation industry at the state, regional and federal levels. Based on direction from the Board of Directors, committee volunteers work with staff to influence policy and increase demand for efficient irrigation. The committee:

  • Drafts policy statements for board review and adoption.
  • Vets industry issues and recommends action or non-action.
  • Explores opportunities for proactive partnerships and coalitions.
  • Provides regular updates to IA members on policy issues and association activities.
