Legislation Committee

CDP Legislation Request Form

The deadline to submit a timely Legislation Request for consideration at the 2019 August Executive Board is Wednesday, July 24th by 5:00PM.

The Committee Process: We are broken into two sub-committees, State and Federal Legislation, both of which have conference calls prior to the eBoard meeting during which they review the submissions and put forward a consent calendar. At eBoard, that consent calendar is presented to the full committee. We take general testimony at the beginning of the committee meeting, followed by a (public) committee discussion (Having an advocate remain to answer questions during committee discussion can be helpful). Staff provides every committee member with copies of all legislation on the consent calendar, as well as any additional materials that submitters have supplied for that purpose. Anyone planning to testify should arrive a few minutes before the start of the meeting to sign in. Thank you.

Committee Duties: The Legislation Committee proposes legislation, when needed, in response to the duties and policies of the Party; maintains a listing of all pending legislation that is of "must" and/or major concern to the Party; and keeps a record of the vote by the Democratic Party legislators on those legislative items. The Legislation Committee makes recommendations and proposes actions on said legislation that is consistent with guidelines adopted by the California Democratic State Central Committee (California Democratic Party) Rules Committee
