Legislative Platform

Print

JCSD recognizes the need for an active legislative program to ensure the interests of its customers are protected.  The Board of Directors developed JCSD's Legislative Platform to define desired outcomes from challenges posed by proposed legislation and to determine positions on issues that may impact JCSD.  The Legislative Platform is based on JCSD’s Mission and Vision.
