State Legislative Priorities

Overview

State Legislative Priorities

Each year, CWDA solicits input on legislative priorities from the county human services agencies and the association’s committees. The CWDA Board of Directors sets priorities for each legislative session. This section reflects updates on CWDA’s current legislative priorities, as well as outcomes of past priorities. 

Legislation

2020 Sponsored Legislation

CWDA is sponsoring or cosponsoring several bills this legislative session. We will update this page as bills are introduced, and add fact sheets and sample support letters in this section.

PLEASE NOTE: For the 2019-20 Session, most legislative committees ask that letters be submitted via the online Advocates portal, rather than via email or fax. The portal can be found at: https://calegislation.lc.ca.gov/Advocates/  and you will need to create a profile before submitting letters on behalf of your organization.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Legislature has voted to recess until April 13. All hearings scheduled between March 16 and April 3, when the Legislature was already scheduled to recess for Spring Break, have been canceled/postponed.

Chaptered and Vetoed Legislation Reports

CWDA has compiled the following reports for legislation it tracked dating back to the 2009-10 legislative session. For each session, there is a chaptered report and a vetoed report, with the exception of the 2013-14 year when none of the legislation CWDA tracked was vetoed.
