Legislative Outreach Alerts

Overview

Legislative Outreach Alerts

When priority issues need membership feedback and support, CALBO will call on our membership to engage their own representatives to address local needs. When bills are heard in policy or fiscal committees, members of the Legislature will look to their own constituency and subject matter experts to provide concrete arguments. CALBO member letters and comments are always appreciated as they give valuable background and evidence, which help legislators during these critical hearings.

Outreach Alert: EV Charging Stations and AB 1236 Compliance
Is your jurisdiction compliant?

EA imageIn 2020 the State Legislature and Governor’s Office, after receiving criticism from the charging station industry, are undertaking efforts to further tighten timelines and review restrictions on electrical vehicle (EV) charging stations. Currently, AB 2168 (McCarty) is proposed to allow for construction of an EV charging station if no permit is issued after 15 days from application.

Gubernatorial Outreach Alert – AB 2681 (Seismic Resiliency)
Member Call to Action

With this legislative session coming to an end, many bills are moving to their final destination – the governor’s desk. Once a bill arrives at Governor Brown’s desk, he will either sign it into law, or veto the measure. CALBO is currently tracking many measures in these last days of session, but has been actively advocating on the seismic resiliency measures moving through the legislative process.

Legislative Outreach Alert – AB 2681 (Seismic Resiliency)
Member Call to Action

This year’s legislative session has been filled with building health and safety issues that directly affect our membership. CALBO has been closely tracking several bills, and advocating our strong position at the State Capitol. The Legislature is currently on “summer recess” and will reconvene in August to finish the last few weeks of session. During this time, it would be helpful to get CALBO’s local jurisdictions involved in these advocacy efforts and express their individual concerns with bills that are moving through the process.
