Statewide Legislative Issues

The Upstate is significantly impacted by decisions made in Columbia at the Statehouse — whether the issue is poultry farms, recycling, or renewable energy. So Upstate Forever stays involved at the Statehouse and works tirelessly to keep our Upstate citizens aware of the issues that affect our daily lives and the health of our environment. While the Legislature is in session from January through May of each year, we send out a weekly Legislative Update to anyone who wants to receive it. We also issue Action Alerts on critical, time sensitive issues and provide the tools you need to contact your elected officials.

We also invite you to join our statewide conservation partners for Conservation Lobby Day at the Statehouse each spring. At Lobby Day, you will learn more about the important issues we are working on and how to talk to your legislators about those issues. We'll keep you updated on Lobby Day as it approaches through our Legislative Updates and through our social media posts.
