The following NRLN Legislative Agenda is a compendium of legislative proposals developed to address concerns of retirees who retired from more than 300 U.S. companies and public entities. The full agenda focuses on retirement issues, such as, Income Security (including Social Security) and Health Care Security (including Medicare). The agenda is revised annually, or more often if necessary.
Each year, agenda proposals are fully reexamined and prioritized and the top proposals are supported by Position Papers, detailed White Papers and Executive Summaries are available on this website. A set of one-page Talking Points is also developed for each of the top priorities and are used as a lobbying aid in Washington, D.C. and for NRLN Grassroots Network members to use in advocating NRLN’s proposals with their U.S. Representatives and Senators.
Annual preparation, prioritizing of objectives and grassroots lobbying has proven to be an effective and efficient way to represent retirees and has earned recognition for the NRLN as an effective retiree advocacy organization.
