National Legislative News


The American Legion launched its weekly Legislative Update e-newsletter this past June; it is distributed each Monday (except when Congress is out of session).

Each issue includes a roundup of

1. The latest legislative news on the Legion’s national website

2. Media coverage of Legion testimony and other activities on Capitol Hill.

3. Legislative news from Washington that relates to veterans, servicemembers and military families.

4. A schedule of featured congressional hearings for the week.

6. A variety of links to relevant websites and web pages.

7.  Each issue features a question submitted by a Legionnaire, and an answer provided by the Legion’s legislative director, Louis Celli.

For example, the question in this week’s issue (please see below) is “What is going on with the Legion and the IRS?”.
