The legislative membership category is comprised of two subcategories, federal and state, who wish to support Civil Air Patrol.
► Federal Legislative Member
Members of the United States Congress and federally appointed officials are eligible to become congressional members of Civil Air Patrol. These members do not pay membership dues or submit fingerprint cards and are all assigned to the Congressional Squadron (NHQ999). These members are authorized to fly in CAP aircraft, visit CAP unit meetings/social events, and receive the honorary grade of lieutenant colonel.
► State Legislative Member
Membership in this category is open to state legislators and elected state officials as well as key staff members. Membership dues and fingerprint cards are waived. State Legislative members are assigned to special state legislative squadrons, the wing identifier plus 999 (XX999). These members are authorized to fly in CAP aircraft, visit CAP unit meetings/social events upon invitation and receive the honorary grade of major. If a state legislative member wishes to fully participate in CAP activities they must complete the same training requirements as active members.
