Advocate for City Priorities at the League’s Legislative Action Day on April 24

Preview Webinar Scheduled for April 11

February 11, 2019
Hundreds of city officials will be traveling to Sacramento to lobby their senators and assembly members on bills affecting California cities as part of the League’s April 24 Legislative Action Day.
 
Pre-registration for this free event remains open until April 16. There is still time to plan to attend this educational and advocacy day, as well as schedule meetings with your legislators.
 
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 briefings (10–11:30 a.m.) from League staff and legislative leaders with topics including priority legislation and the state budget. Gov. Gavin Newsom has also been invited to address attendees. The middle of the day is reserved time for your meetings in the Capitol.
 
Given the importance of housing issues, the League has invited the chairs of five key policy committees for a late-afternoon housing panel (3:45–5 p.m.) co-sponsored by the League’s five diversity caucuses.
 
Invitees to the afternoon housing panel include:
  • Sen. Jim Beall, chair, Senate Transportation Committee;
  • Sen. Mike McGuire, chair, Senate Governance and Finance Committee;
  • Sen. Scott Wiener, chair, Senate Housing Committee;
  • Assembly Member David Chiu, chair, Assembly Housing and Community Development Committee; and
  • Assembly Member, Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, chair, Assembly Local Government Committee.
Registration is free for League members and Partners. The cost is $250 for non-member city staff and officials and other companies/organizations.
 
Contact Megan Dunn with registration questions.
 
Contact your regional public affairs manager to arrange meetings in the Capitol with your legislators and their staff.
