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 will be accepting new legislative proposals for the first year of the 2023-2024 Legislative Session. Proposals are due August 3, 2022.
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.
CEAC Policy & Legislative Priorities and Guidelines 2023-2024
CSAC tracks federal issues of interest to California’s counties. CSAC’s Justin Garrett serves as the Legislative Representative & Federal Affairs Manager, and counties retain Paragon Government Relations in Washington, D.C. to monitor developments at the national level.
