APA California’s Legislative Review Team (LRT) is composed of volunteer APA California members including public and private sector planners with a wide range of experience, and students. The team includes members from all eight of the Chapter’s local Sections, as well as each Section’s elected Legislative Representative.
The Legislative Review Team provides expert and professional opinions to the APA California Vice President for Policy & Legislation and Chapter lobbyist to shape APA California positions on pending legislation in the California State Legislature and state agency regulations.
The Legislative Review Team meets once every March to review legislation introduced for the year. In that meeting, positions on pending legislation are considered. Subsequent meetings are held as needed throughout the year and the Legislative Review Team will receive information and requests via email from the VP for Policy and Legislation and Chapter lobbyist. Legislative Review Team members are not required to provide feedback on every request, but are asked to do so when possible. The Legislative Review Team will also receive advanced notice of announcements on legislative and regulatory issues and frequent legislative updates.
