Why Do You Need State and Local Services?

Governors, state senators, state representatives and locally elected officials can be extremely effective in communicating your messages to Members of Congress. A state-level effort enhances all federal government relations efforts. Consider the following:

  • Most Members of Congress look to state legislative leaders for input and feedback on what is going on back in their home districts
  • Many Members of Congress are themselves former governors, state senators and state representatives
  • Some of these state legislative leaders will themselves be elected to Congress in the future
  • State leaders pay particular attention to how much a company and/or industry is contributing to state tax rolls, employment and their communities
  • State legislative leaders are an "on-the-ground" resource in congressional districts who can be an important asset in communicating your messages
  • Statements and actions of state leaders, particularly committee members of key state House/Senate committees, can add strength to your messages
  • Many issues addressed in Congress have originated in state legislatures
