Legislative Policy Committee

The Legislative Policy Committee (LPC) was established by the Board in order to expand the participation of Board members, while maintaining an effective and efficient response to the ever-changing legislative landscape. The LPC will have several key responsibilities. Among those are:

  • The committee is authorized to take positions on state and federal legislation, regulations, policies, and issues on behalf of the Board, that are consistent with SBCTA/SBCOG’s adopted legislative platform.
  • Provide direction and input on the development of the SBCTA/SBCOG state and federal legislative platforms.
  • Receive updates regarding proposed and pending legislation, regulations, and policies at the state and federal level from SBCTA staff and the agency’s state and federal advocates.

The SBCTA/SBCOG legislative platforms serve as the foundation for understanding the perspective of the Board on key issues that are anticipated to be considered during the course of each legislative session. Once formally adopted, the legislative platforms will guide staff’s analysis and recommendations on pending legislative and regulatory items during the legislative session.
