Government Affairs Department

 

Government Affairs Introduction

In August 2009, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary established a Government Affairs Department. Government Affairs assumed all duties that were authorized by the national board in the creation of the National Legislative Liaison Committee (NLLC) which provided support for state legislative liaison officers (LLO) in each district. The NLLC directly advised the National Board, National Executive Committee, and National Staff of legislative and regulatory developments at the Federal, State and Local levels which affect Auxiliary missions

Functions of Government Affairs

          To inform the National Board, National Executive Committee and the National Staff of legislative and regulatory developments at the Federal, State and Local levels which affect Auxiliary missions;

         To recommend to the National Commodore appropriate Auxiliary responses to such developments;

         To assist the District Commodores, Coast Guard External Affairs and Coast Guard District Legal staff in preparing such responses as may be specifically authorized.

Staff of the Governmental Affairs or Appointed staff of the District Commodore’s should have a general understanding of the Auxiliary, its resources and their basic function. Each Auxiliarist should also be familiar with the basic structure of our National Organization and the various departments.

Together, they serve as a conduit to pass information regarding any type of activity that may be of interest to the Auxiliary or its affiliated organizations via each state’s legislation liaison officer (LLO).

The Director of Government Affairs (or their designee) shall represent the Auxiliary in developing, initiating, and carrying forth actions in support of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, recreational boating safety legislation, and emergency services.
