In this episode, Deborah Williams, OIA’s managing content editor, talks with Jessica Wahl, OIA’s Government Affairs Manager about how OIA is advocating for its members at the state and federal level. Jessica works in D.C., on recreation policy, and in this interview we’ll hear the latest on what she’s working on, the response since the Trump Administration rolled back the protection on the Utah’s national monuments, and the actions you can take to make a difference. You can find out more information about the work that OIA does on policy at outdoorindustry.org/advocacy. There you can also see what current legislation OIA is working on at the state and federal level. Finally, if you want to engage policymakers directly, you can attend Capitol Summit in D.C. in April.
