Legislative Staff Week 2020

This week, we pause to celebrate the good work of legislative staff, who work behind the scenes to support state legislatures. From drafting bills to keeping computer networks secure, their work is even more important and valued during these unprecedented times. Join us May 4-8 to recognize their efforts with a standing ovation or two.
