Register Now for the League's Legislative Briefings

Scheduled for Nov. 15 and 16

November 4, 2011

The League will hold its annual Legislative Briefings on Nov. 15 via webinar and Nov. 16 in Irvine, both at a reduced cost from 2010 rates.

 

The live webinar allows attendees to stay informed while limiting travel costs, which makes training multiple staff members affordable for cities. 

 

The Legislative Briefings provide an overview of legislative issues and information regarding new laws for 2012 that will affect cities. The briefings are designed to help city officials stay up to date and in compliance with the law.

Briefings Topics:

  • Untangling the State Budget Mess
  • What’s Happening With Redevelopment
  • The SB 89 VLF Sweep
  • Realignment and the Three Judge Panel
  • Medical Marijuana
  • Fate of the “Bell Bills”
  • Legislation on Land Use and the Environment
  • Other Legislation from the 2011 Session
  • Issues for 2012

Webinar

Tuesday, Nov. 15 from 10 – 11:30 a.m.

Southern California Briefing

Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Irvine City Hall, Council Chambers, 1 Civic Center Plaza

The time frame for the Irvine meeting is expanded to allow League lobbyists to discuss the complexity of this year’s legislative issues in more depth than the webinar. Additional value for the meeting is provided by the opportunity to hear the perspective of two state legislators. Confirmed for this event are both Assembly Member Don Wagner (R-Irvine) and Sen. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) who will give presentations and share their view from “inside the building.” City officials are encouraged to register early for the in-person meeting in Irvine as space in limited.

Registration for either session is $25 for member cities and League partners and $100 for non-member cities. Register online by Wednesday, Nov. 9.
