A CALL FOR RESOLUTIONS

PNGAS, PNGEA, and NGAPA will consider resolutions at the upcoming 30th PNGAS State Annual Conference on 25-27 April 2014. A resolution is a legislative idea that members would like PNGAS to work on with the Pennsylvania Legislature or Congress. As a member-based organization, PNGAS seeks your proposed resolutions aimed at enhancing the Pennsylvania National Guard - its equipment, capabilities, and the quality of life of its soldiers and airmen and their families.

Your proposed resolutions may be submitted to LTC Dale T. Waltman at dale.waltman@comcast.net. There is no standard format for submission; this is where "a good idea" can lead to legislative change.

PNGEA and NGAPA will each consider resolutions to submit to their separate national organizations. Each separate organization uses a standing resolution format in which the current resolutions may be amended, deleted, or new resolutions added. Standing resolutions of EANGUS can be found at http://www.eangus.org/?page=Resolutions. NGAUS standing resolutions can be found under the Issues & Advocacy tab at http://www.ngaus.org.

Deadline for resolution submission to LTC Waltman is 15 April 2014. See you at the Conference!

2014 PNGAS Legislative Priorities - A Call to Action

 Please take time to view the 2014 PNGAS Legislative Priorities video that showcases the association's priorities for 2014. The video was produced by PNGAS member Ed Shank to share the priority issues facing the Pennsylvania National Guard this year with our federal and state legislators and the general public. Please share this video with your friends and encourage them to consider writing their legislators and asking for them to act on these very important issues! 
The key legislative priorities for PNGAS this year include:
  • Stopping BOLD MOVE - The active duty Army's plan to remove all Apache helicopters from the National Guard, including 24 aircraft based in Pennsylvania.
  • Maintaining our force structure of 4 Army National Guard combat brigades and 3 specialized Air National Guard Wings in Pennsylvania.
  • Maintaining the force strength within the ranks of the Pennsylvania National Guard.

On 12-13 March 2013, PNGAS visited the Pennsylvania Congressional Delegation at the Capitol in Washington. Led by PNGAS Chair Angela Stateler, Vice Chair Joel Mutschler, with Major General Wesley Craig, a group Pennsylvania National Guard association members fanned out across the Capitol to brief our Congressional Delegation on our federal legislative priorities and issues of concern.
