TIPS Resolutions at the ABA Midyear House of Delegates

By Lisa Dickinson

TIPS had a strong showing in the House of Delegates at the ABA Midyear Meeting, held February 17, 2020, in Austin, Texas. TIPS proposed a few resolutions, and all passed. One of the newest TIPS Committees, the Cannabis Law and Policy Committee, put forth two different resolutions. Once the initial hurdle of approval from TIPS Council went through, the work to reach out to other ABA entities on these cutting-edge legal topics was hurried so that these resolutions could be passed at Midyear. The hard work of the Committee was not futile. Once the resolutions reached the House of Delegates, there was little if any opposition, and no opposition from the floor of the House.
