As a service to our member programs, we want to share the following information about California bills in this session. Please feel free to share this information with your staff. If you would like to set up an alert on any of these bills, search for the bill, then click subscribe. You will get occasional updates when the bill’s status has changed. You or your staff can also write a letter of support or opposition to your legislator.
LAAC gets a lot of our information from Around the Capitol. We highly recommend you check out the site and their daily newsletter, the Nooner, if you want to follow Sacramento politics. Another great way to find out about current and relevant California legislation is the California Association of Nonprofits’ legislation tracker.
If you work at an LSC-funded program, as a reminder, staff is prohibited from lobbying a legislator without a specific invitation to comment from that legislator. Many legislators have requested comments from LSC-funded programs, and LAAC tracks all legislator letters requesting information–to the best of LAAC’s knowledge. If you have any questions, please contact Salena Copeland, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
