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 had an opportunity to submit legislative and policy proposals for the 2019-20 legislative session during CEAC’s Policy Conference in Sacramento, September 12-13, 2018. The Priorities and Guidelines were approved by the CEAC Board of Directors, November 30, 2018.
