Work closely with the MFCA President and Legislative Chair/Committee throughout the 2021 legislative session of the 130th Maine Legislature to maximize opportunities for efficiency and action on key legislative issues as they evolve. Participate in conference calls as needed to refine or re-define MFCA position on legislative issues as they evolve throughout the legislative process.

Monitor the flow of LRs and LDs as they are produced and provide periodic summaries to the MFCA legislative committee chair of those bills which are or may be of interest to the fire service.
