How do I get my issue before the SCPP?

Write a letter to the committee! 

Correspondence is posted on a weekly basis and is part of the meeting materials.  The Executive Committee reviews all correspondence and decides which issues the full committee will study.  We receive many requests each year and not every issue goes to the full committee for study. 

Our contact information is on the Contact Us page. 

Agendas and links to issues studied at meetings are available on the Meetings page.
