State of Alabama
Press Release: Lt. Governor Folsom (2007-11)

Folsom Named to National Policy Committee


Alabama’s Lieutenant Governor  is serving on a national policy committee for the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA).  Lt. Governor Jim Folsom, Jr.  is serving as member of the NLGA Policy Resolutions Committee.   


The Policy Resolutions Committee hears testimony on policy statements submitted by NLGA members.  Policy issues are reviewed for endorsement on a bi-partisan basis by all members of the association.  “The endorsement of NLGA policy positions is a serious task since passage means that an issue is backed in a bi-partisan way by the officeholders first in line of succession to become governor,” said NLGA Director Julia Hurst.  “These policy statements are used to promote legislative activity in the states and in Congress by affecting the national stage.”          


Folsom also serves as National Vice Chairman of the Aerospace States Association, a subsidiary organization of the NLGA.  “I’m proud to continue my service on a national level through the NLGA,”said Folsom. 


The committee meets about three times a year and, in addition to its specific duties, will address issues of mutual concern to all members.  NLGA is a professional association providing research and training to the officeholders first in line of succession to governor in all 50 states and the U.S. territories.  See www.nlga.us for more information.
