American Legion lobbyist joins Price on Budget Committee

Caught Our Eye Posted by Steve Shapiro on Wednesday, November 25, 2015

A veteran lobbyist and lobbyist for veterans has joined Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) on the House Budget Committee this month.

Steve Gonzalez served as assistant director in the economic division of the American Legion since 2011 before heading to the House Budget Committee as a policy adviser. While at the veteran's organization, Gonzalez lobbied at both the state and federal level for the group. Disclosures reflect Gonzalez lobbying on two issues in particular - supporting a constitutional amendment to make flag burning illegal and supporting a loosening of restrictions on firearm ownership by veterans with diagnosed mental health issues.

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) has brought on a seasoned reproductive health lobbyist and analyst as a new legislative assistant.

M.A. Keifer - who goes by her last name - joined Lee this month from the organization Advocates for Youth, where she was a registered lobbyist from 2013 until her departure. Keifer held the position of international policy analyst at the organization which has the self-stated mission to "advocate for policies and champion programs that recognize young people's rights to honest sexual health information." During her time, she lobbied on issues such as contraception access, teen pregnancy prevention, HIV/AIDS and comprehensive sexuality education among others.

We have found LegiStorm to be the ultimate tool in communicating with congressional offices, either individually or with a group. We have been able to reach out with messages to all chiefs of staff and legislative directors, or staff dedicated to specific areas. We believe that this ability was instrumental in passing two key pieces of legislation which were imperative to our members.
