The U.S. Congress meets continually throughout the year with several scheduled breaks. In addition to participating with both WineAmerica and the Winegrape Growers of America to ensure the industry’s needs are met on the federal level, association staff and key volunteers travel to Washington DC several times each year to meet with staff and members of congress.
If you have an interest in participating in these trips or are planning a trip to Washington DC and would like help scheduling visits with your elected officials and their staff members, please contact TWGGA.
Sunset is the regular assessment of the continuing need for a state agency or program to exist. Sunset starts with the basic question: Do the agency’s functions continue to be needed? The Sunset process works by setting an automatic termination date on which an agency will be abolished unless a bill is passed to continue it.
