U.S. Congress
- The American Legion Legislative Division is governed by a full commission and promotes the organization’s positions and recommendations to Congress, the White House, departments and agencies. The division coordinates support efforts on Capitol Hill and advises state legislative councils as they deliver the Legion message across the country. An annual portfolio of priorities is produced and presented to Congress from the national commander and chairmen of the Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation and Legislative commissions. The portfolio, based on national resolutions, serves as a guide for volunteers and staff to use when meeting with elected representatives. The Legislative Action Center provides members an online gateway of information to track bills and follow developments in Washington.
