Taking Positions on Federal Legislation
No section or committee may take positions on federal legislation or issues unless the position has been approved as a Colorado Bar Association position. In order to become a CBA position, the position must be approved by the Legislative Policy Committee, the Executive Council or Board of Governors. In emergency situations, the president, acting with the advice of the immediate past president and president-elect, may authorize a CBA position. Sections and committees may serve as a resource or provide technical information on either state or federal issues only if they have approval of the president or the executive director, and they make it clear that they are not advocating a CBA position.
