Federal 100: Austin Agrella

Name: Austin Agrella
Title: Legislative Director

Agrella was the lead writer of the act, so his influence can be found throughout the legislative process. When the bill stalled in the Senate after passing the House, Agrella was the person Hurd sent to negotiate with the staff of Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) to help push the bill over the finish line.
