MPA is Your Advocate in Washington

MPA's Washington office carries out a comprehensive governmental affairs program to promote and protect the interests of the magazine publishing industry in the nation's capital and the 50 states. It does so by direct lobbying efforts, legal and regulatory advocacy, by participating in coalitions of like-minded interest groups, and through special arrangements in state capitals.

The Washington staff, composed of experienced governmental affairs, legislative, regulatory, and economic specialists, is augmented by outside counsel and consultants. The office works closely with MPA's member companies and with associations representing various media and advertising interests.

The Office publishes a Washington E-newsletter to keep members regularly informed of government affairs activities, as well as maintaining a watchful eye over ongoing legislation relevant to the magazine industry - including Advertising, Consumer Protection, Environmental, Intellectual Property, First Amendment, Postal, and Tax policy.
