To reinvigorate the industry and encourage grants, investment, scholarships, people through the door etc. AOPA and the other associations need to get together and brainstorm a set of tangible proposals and reforms they can push to "someone" - a Senator or McCormack - to support.
Multiple reforms and proposals confuse punters and politicians alike. Chose just one that's simple and important to us and push it like hell. May I suggest that would be Australia changing to the FAA rules. Clear examples are available that show countries which have done that have thriving aviation industries and at the same time save bucket loads of money by not having a bunch of useless drones making up senseless rules applicable only to Australia and understood by no one.
