NCISS Legislative Update
- December 01, 2015
- by Francie Koehler and Brad Duffy
Friends and Colleagues,
The following is a monthly update from the NCISS Legislative Committee and LobbyIt.
In the month of November, NCISS continued work on several Labor-related provisions for a FY2016 funding package, meeting with top appropriators in the House and Senate to push for their inclusion in and end-of-the-year funding deal. NCISS and Lobbyit also continued tracking FAA drone registration requirements, as well as numerous other pieces of legislation as 2016 approaches.
Updates this month include: Omnibus and NLRB funding - YOUR ACTION needed; Update on proposed FAA drone registration and update on pending legislation as the current session of Congress begins to end.
NCISS continues to monitor these activities, and will keep our members and profession advised.

The National Council of Investigation and Security Services, Inc., (NCISS - www.NCISS.org), is a cooperative effort of those companies and associations responsible for providing private security and investigation services to the legal profession, business community, government and the public. Each day we find an increasing number of problems confronting the orderly growth of our profession. These problems include, among others: overly restrictive legislation regarding training and standards, proliferation of legislation requiring local licensing, public misunderstanding and misinformation on the role and contribution of private investigators and security services, and an uninformed media. It is the role of NCISS to meet and solve these problems while seeking to uncover and recommend action on any hidden potential problems which may have an effect on our profession.
NCISS is developing new strategies to assist state associations strengthen and grow. We can use the help of individual memberships to NCISS. Details are at http://www.nciss.org/membership/membership-information.php
