Want to Learn More About the Legislative Process in California?

January 18, 2013

The League has created a new webpage under our resources section called “Learn About the Legislative Process” with information to help our members understand the complex California legislative process and ways in which city officials can be engaged in advocacy efforts.

 

The webpage includes:

  • Helpful Tips for City Officials Lobbying the Legislature.
  • Legislative Resources such as League staff contact information, publications and presentations, an archive of Annual Legislative Reports and the League’s Summary of Existing Policy and Guiding Principles.
  • A Breakdown of the Legislative Process including:
    • Basic Overview of the Process
    • A flowchart created by the Assembly Rules Committee, “The Life Cycle of Legislation: From Idea to Law”
    • The California State Assembly Legislative Procedure Handbook
    • Legislative Calendar
    • A Glossary of Legislative Terms
    • A Legislator Contact Information Search Engine
