Legislative Committee

Meeting Notice Regarding COVID-19: Due to the regional shelter in place order stemming from COVID-19, C/CAG Legislative Committee meetings will only be available via remote conferencing. The public may participate via a Zoom weblink and/or by phone; details are provided in each agenda linked below.

Public Comment: Persons who wish to address the C/CAG Legislative Committee regarding items on or not on the agenda for any meeting, are asked to submit comments in writing to kspringer@smcgov.org by 5:00 PM on the day of the meeting of interest.  Detailed information on how to submit comments is provided in the meeting agendas.

The Legislative Committee provides advice and recommendations to the full C/CAG Board on all matters dealing with State legislation, ballot measures, and positions to take on specific bills. During the active legislative year (January through August) the Committee monitors bills of potential interest to C/CAG member agencies and selects those to be tracked. The Committee then recommends positions on bills for consideration by the full C/CAG Board and acts as the liaison with C/CAG’s legislative lobbyist, and makes recommendations to the C/CAG Board for bills to be referred to the lobbyist for action. On issues of highest priority, the committee may direct staff to seek one or more legislative delegates to sponsor a bill that provides countywide benefit and aligns with C/CAG’s adopted legislative policies.

The Legislative Committee also works with staff and C/CAG’s Federal Legislative Advocate to track federal policies and funding opportunities for C/CAG projects.
