Current JLOCC Supported Legislation

Each legislative session, CalSPAC delegates review dozens of bills for possible action on behalf of CalSPAC's member Leagues. Each bill that the JLOCC supports is thoroughly evaluated for its impact and alignment with not only CalSPAC's focus areas and also the JLOCC’s issues, projects and community partners. We write letters of support at each stage of the legislative cycle and are often asked to testify in committee hearings on the bills that the JLOCC and CalSPAC support.  If you are interested in helping our letter writing campaigns, please contact our Advocacy Chair here.   

In the 2016 legislative cycle, the JLOCC is currently supporting six bills.  Below are the bills of support broken out by focus area.
