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.
CEAC is currently requesting submission of legislative proposals for the 2021-2022 Legislative Session. Please see the memo, below, for more details and specific instructions.
Please submit all legislative proposals through a Public Works Director or Department Head. This makes it easier on staff to collect the requests as well as ensure that there is no duplication from within the same county.
Draft legislative proposals are due to CEAC by COB February 14.
