In 2011, ESCA held three “mini” lobby days in addition to the “mega” lobby day at the Federal Policy Conference. Between these four events, ESCA companies met with more than 80 House Members and 31 Senate Members. Lobby day teams focused on building awareness and support from Members of key Committees (House Ways and Means, House Education and the Workforce, Senate Finance, and Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions) and asking for support of H.R. 1244/S. 1512, the Promotion and Expansion of Employee Ownership Act. The lobby day teams’ hard work led to 62 Members of the House of Representatives co-sponsoring H.R. 1244, and 10 Members of the Senate co-sponsoring S. 1512.
