PAC, is a committee which collects voluntary contributions from members of a group(NRLCA).It distributes funds to candidates for federal offices and makes a report on its activities. (NRLCA).PAC is important because it accumulates small contributions into a central account so that larger contributions can be made to a candidate for Congress. Therefore, each contribution has increased importance to the candidate.
Our PAC is a lobbying tool. It is something which is of assistance to the National Office in working for legislation which helps rural carriers and against legislation that may be detrimental to rural carriers.
The NRLCA-PAC plays a key role in representing our interests on Capitol Hill by supporting key Senators and Representatives.
NRLCA-PAC financially supports:
*Members who are friendly to our positions
*Legislators who serve on committees with jurisdiction over issues important to NRLCA
*Congressional candidates who could support our causes, if elected
The money contributed to NRLCA-PAC aids in each Member's election campaign committee. Campaigns, in turn, use the money to send mass mailings, purchased TV and radio ads, fund "Get Out The Vote" efforts, and support their colleague's campaign efforts.
The NRLCA-PAC helps make the lives of Rural Letter Carriers better. In the past, PAC contributions successfully aided in the defeat of efforts to restrict collective bargaining, made sure single piece parcels remained in the market dominant category, and scuttled anti-labor amendments. In order to ensure that our voices are heard from now through the next election, NRLCA-PAC must begin preparing now.
