Federal Issues

View the bills that NAPBS is tracking.

NAPBS’ government relations programs are designed to:

  • Advocate for the screening profession.
  • Represent the interests and concerns of screeners and those in the screening profession.
  • Facilitate broad member participation.
  • Provide a strong unified voice for screening through legislative and regulatory representation.

The involvement of members is vital to the success of our efforts. To make a difference, you have to make your voice heard. We encourage all NAPBS members to use the information provided on the Legislative Action Center to take an active role in addressing the issues facing screening. We also encourage participation in NAPBS Advocacy Day.

Download the 2017 Advocacy Toolkit containing material to assist NAPBS members in developing strategies to educate legislators on topical issues affecting screening.

Federal legislation and regulatory action related to the screening profession are closely monitored and discussed with the Government Relations Committee. Together with NAPBS’ legislative partner and Board of Directors the committee determines where engagement and action is needed on behalf of the NAPBS membership. The Government Relations Committee meets on a monthly basis to review current legislation and regulatory activity.
