Defeated Model State Legislation Potentially Damaging to Client


Defeating proposed model legislation damaging to association client’s industry from a national legislative policy group. 

Stateside Solution:  

Stateside directed an effort to defeat model legislation: 

  • We represented the client through testimony before the committee considering the model legislation.
  • We identified potential allies and explained the risks of the proposed legislation to their interests.
  • We researched and provided evidence to key committee members about the consequences of the model.
  • We coordinated communication between key committee members and other policy groups who had previously defeated a similar policy.


The sponsor withdrew the legislation from consideration after finding insufficient support in the committee for further consideration.
