There’s still time to pre-register for this event and schedule meetings with your legislators. Pre-registration for this free event is open until April 16.
The annual Legislative Action Day is an opportunity to meet with legislators and their staff in the Capitol to discuss the most pressing issues for California cities. The day begins with morning briefings from League staff, legislative leaders, and representatives from the Governor’s office discussing topics including priority legislation and the state budget. The middle of the day is reserved time for your meetings in the Capitol.
