Legislative Committee

The Legislative Committee works in tandem with the Legislative Advocate to establish, monitor and advocate legislative issues on behalf of CAJPA and its members. The Legislative Committee keeps CAJPA members apprised of key bills and regulatory issues, and mobilizes support as needed. To ensure that all issues with potential to impact CAJPA members are reviewed, the committee is divided into subcommittees based on subject areas of interest: health care, joint powers authorities, loss control, tort liability and workers’ compensation. The committee is comprised of 15 volunteer members who are subject matter experts in their respective areas. The Legislative Committee meets five times per year and is responsible for:

  • Reviewing pertinent legislation and regulations and taking appropriate positions
  • Prioritizing and directing CAJPA resources toward lobbying efforts
  • Meeting with legislators and their staff to advocate for CAJPA and its members
  • Working with government agencies on regulatory matters of importance to CAJPA
  • Reviewing ideas for CAJPA-sponsored legislation and making recommendations to the Board
  • Keeping the Board and membership informed on important legislative and regulatory issues
  • Working with other employer and public sector groups as part of a coalition
