Legislative

Overview

Legislative Committee

The CALBO Legislative Committee reviews all policy proposals made by the full-time California State Legislature, examining potential impacts on building departments and local government. CALBO’s professional staff are a part of the Committee, assisting with the development of positions and strategy for desired outcomes. Committee business is conducted via teleconference throughout the year when the State Legislature is in session, oftentimes on short notice due to rapidly changing proposals and prevailing politics.

Committee Goals

  1. Develop a three-tiered approach to analyzing legislative bills to include the CALBO Executive Committee, CALBO Board of Directors, and CALBO Policy Committees.
  2. Reach out to International Code Council chapter presidents to participate in and consider developing a chapter leadership component to Leadership and Advocacy Day.
  3. Increase membership participation in the legislative process through providing letter templates and other outreach resources.
