Florida YMCA Youth In Government

Lobbyist Program

DIRECTOR OF LEGISLATIVE AFFAIRS & LEGISLATIVE WHIPS

Working in concert with the Legislative, Executive, and Press Corps; Lobbyists hold the keys to making or breaking legislation through the powers of knowledge, information, and persuasion. They are the “lifelines” for Senators and Representatives as they try to secure co-sponsors, pass their own legislation, and argue other proposed legislation.

Lobbyists are also responsible for assisting the members of the Williams House and Senate to find Co-Sponsors for their legislation, as well as the passage of legislation between the Williams House & Senate chambers and onto the Governor’s office for his or her signature.
