Here's How Adults 50-Plus Fared in 2019-20 State Legislative Session

Posted on 01/25/21

AARP Michigan advocates on policy issues that matter most to Michigan residents age 50 and over and their families.

AARP staff and volunteers work on both state and federal legislative issues. In our state legislative advocacy efforts, AARP relies on nearly 300 AARP Michigan volunteers, a state office headquartered in Lansing and our 1.3 million Michigan members.

Each spring we publish an annual State Legislative Agenda that we share with Michigan’s State Representatives, State Senators, Governor, AARP members, our volunteers and the public. We also notify legislators of our positions on bills in real time as they move through the legislative process.

We communicate our positions through emailed and hand-delivered letters to legislators, committee testimony, one-on-one meetings, social media, our website, press releases, media interviews and more.

After votes take place, AARP Michigan educates our members and the public about how state legislators voted on our priority issues via AARP’s various communication channels. After the close of every two-year Michigan legislative session, we publish this End of Session Report: EndofSessionReport2020
