AFSA's Legislative Program
Specifically focused on issues that affect enlisted Airmen and their families, AFSA regularly meets with members of Congress and Air Force and government senior leaders to advocate for fair and equitable benefits that matter to today’s Total Force Airmen and their families, and to our Veterans who have served proudly in the past. Pay raises, tuition assistance, healthcare, COLA adjustments, transition programs, care for survivors, and education benefits are just a few things on AFSA’s legislative scope. For a look at all of AFSA's legislative priorities for the coming year, click on our Legislative Platform below.
The Legislative Platform serves as the blueprint for AFSA's testimony and lobbying efforts, in addition to responses dictated by day-to-day events. Each area designates Association-approved initiatives but this list is not all inclusive.

Chapter Legislative Involvement.
The focus of the Air Force Sergeants Association is on improving the quality of the lives of current and past total force enlisted Airmen and their families. We primarily do this through our legislative advocacy program. AFSA has four registered lobbyist who work hard in Washington to influence Congress and the Administration to amend Public Law--to create, maintain, and protect quality-of-life programs. The Chapters have an important role in the grassroots infrastructure that supports the Headquarters’ important work. A strong Legislative Program at the Chapter level is important.
