Federal Advocacy Priorities

AUA advocacy at the federal level is among our top priorities. We work full time in Washington, DC, with lawmakers and regulators . Our work impacts both the federal and state levels to support the practice of urology, our members and their patients.

Our legislative priorities are founded on Association-wide survey data from members and sister society leaders. This critical input helped establish a responsible course of action where it is needed most. The AUA’s federal and state priorities were developed by our Legislative Affairs and State Advocacy committees, respectively. Both sets of priorities were approved by the AUA Board of Directors in December 2018.

2019 Federal Legislative Priorities

The AUA 2019 legislative priorities will serve as a guide for the AUA's advocacy efforts at both the state and federal levels, but do not limit or restrict the policy issues the AUA may consider.
