What are Letters and Statements?

Even in the digital age, letters are an important part of education and communications efforts. Our policy letters are how we go on record with public officials and experts. Sometimes we are asked to testify or attend a hearing as subject matter experts. Other times, we highlight the importance and urgency of an issue for officials and regulators to see. From Notice and Comment to hearing testimony and requests, here are a few of our policy communications. Read some today, then visit our issues and publications pages for deeper dives into these and more subjects and find our video statements and analysis. For press releases and media statements, visit our media center or subscribe to our monthly newsletter.
