Electric Cooperative Policy Priorities in 2019

As the new Congress gets under way, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) will be advocating on many public policy issues on behalf of electric cooperatives. Specifically, NRECA plans to (1) work to ensure that any infrastructure package will include opportunities to modernize the electric grid and expand rural broadband access, (2) encourage bipartisan support for energy research and development programs, (3) work to protect electric cooperative employee retirement benefits, and (4) advocate for resources and technologies that meet the unique cybersecurity and recovery needs of small and medium-sized utilities.
