Congressional Advocacy

  • APPA Legislative Rally - each year a delegation of MPUA members and staff participate in this public power rally and talk with members of Congress to explain the impact of issues affecting municipal utilities
  • MPUA staff meet regularly with relevant congressional committee staff as well as our members of Congress and provide formal comments and letters when energy and utility issues come before their bodies
  • MPUA participates in stakeholder groups to present a strong voice for public power and municipal utilities and works regularly with both investor-owned and cooperative utilities to educate Congress on the effects of congressional action
