Labor and Economic Development
The Labor and Economic Development Committee is one of 8 Standing Committees of NCSL. The committee covers state and federal issues related to labor, employment, workforce, economic development, international trade and cultural affairs. The committee educates Congress and federal agencies about state concerns related to federal actions that impact the states, based on policy positions adopted by the states through NCSL's policy process. In addition, the Committee serves as a forum for legislators and legislative staff to learn about and share information about policy options being considered in states.
