The MOPH National Legislative Program is the voice of MOPH Patriots and supporters on Capitol Hill. This program allows MOPH to take official positions on legislation in Congress that affects veterans, their families and survivors. What We Do:

  • Work to develop MOPH national legislative priorities
  • Track current legislation as it moves through Congress
  • Provide Congressional testimony
  • Send letters of support or opposition on current legislation
  • Build and maintain relationships with Members of Congress, their staffs, federal officials, and other VSOs in Washington, DC
  • Coordinate grassroots efforts through our Voter Voice service
