The committee oversees the Shared State Legislation Program (SSL) Launched in 1941, SSL is both a member-driven process and an annual publication detailing topics of current importance to the states. The CSG SSL Committee includes legislators and legislative staff from across the nation and meets twice annually to review legislation adopted in the states. The committee then selects legislation to be included in the annual SSL volume. These volumes are published online and in print for dissemination to state leaders and staff. CSG does not promote or advocate for the enactment of state legislation, nor does it draft model legislation. Rather, the program’s goal is to facilitate the sharing of legislative ideas among CSG members.
The consideration or dissemination of such legislation by the SSL Committee does not constitute an endorsement nor will CSG advocate for the enactment of any such legislation in any member jurisdictions.
