The primary functions of this committee are to keep aware of and initiate local, state, and national legislative actions of concerns to people who are visually-impaired and/or handicapped. Comprehensive advocacy reports are submitted to the board with committee recommendations. Reference services and necessary materials are provided, on request, to board members to be distributed to their chapters.

With the Board's approval, this committee is responsible for contacting legislators to urge their support or legislation concerning visually-impaired people. This committee is also responsible for providing the White Cane Bulletin editors with legislative updates.
