Jason Hudson

AFL-CIO Government and Political Affairs Director

Age 37

Jason worked as a Policy Aid for Rep. Erpelding and the Minority Caucus in 2013. He conducted policy research, drafted legislation, helped develop speeches and committee testimony, and drafted constituent communications. He said he loved developing the message frame and strategy for committee and floor testimony to support good policies and oppose bad policies.

“NextGen allowed me to develop a detailed understanding of the committee process, bill drafting process, and legislative context, which made me a more effective advocate in my current role.”

Jason is now the Government and Political Affairs Director for the AFL-CIO. This year, Jason worked closely with Rep. Erpelding to pass a law that protects hard-working Idahoans from wage theft by extending the timeframe they are able to collect. It was the first piece of substantive legislation that the Idaho AFL-CIO has been able to pass in recent years.
