CEAC Policy & Legislative Proposal Process

The annual Policy and Legislative Priorities are best achieved through collaboration and shared responsibility. To achieve the following, CEAC, CSAC staff, and individual county staff must combine resources, including policy and technical knowledge and expertise to maximize our influence, efficacy, and successful outcomes.

As such, CEAC members have the opportunity to submit legislative and policy proposals for the 2017-18 legislative session during CEAC’s Policy Conference in Sacramento, August 17-18, 2016.

Federal Legislation

CSAC tracks federal issues of interest to California’s counties. CSAC’s Karen Keene serves as the Deputy Director of Federal Affairs, and counties retain Waterman & Associates in Washington, D.C. to monitor developments at the national level.
