Home Issues Legislative


capitolIn Sacramento and in Washington, the legislation of water issues is as fast-moving as it is complex. During any given session, dozens of bills concerning every water issue from the Delta, to stormwater capture, to the regulation of water quality, are rapidly making their way through the various levels of the legislative process.  On a regular basis, these important state and federal legislative items have the potential to greatly impact the landscape of California water issues. In many cases, meticulous bill tracking and real-time collaborative advocacy decisions are required to keep our efforts on track.

Through our dedicated Legislative Task Force, SCWC arms our members with the information and influence they need to stay ahead of the state and federal legislative cycles. Using the best information from some of California’s preeminent water experts and insiders, SCWC tackles state and federal water issues using an all-inclusive approach that utilizes the breadth and diversity of our organization to facilitate collaborative dialogue and establish authoritative consensus.

Through this effort, SCWC maximizes the quality of the legislative information we provide our members, and exerts the powerful influence of consensus on the movers and shakers of state and federal government.
