Communicating with the Committee
How do I submit letters of support or opposition to bills that are set for hearing?
For a hearing which is occuring on Wednesday, written comments should be received by the Committee by the close of business on Thursday of the week prior to the hearing to guarantee being listed in the Committee Analysis. Make sure that your letter is on letterhead and includes the bill number and indicate whether you, or your organization, is in support or opposition. If you have concerns that can be eliminated through amendments please be sure to provide the details. If your letter represents the position of more than one organization please list them individually. Please feel free to email position letters you wish to be listed in the analysis to our committee secretary at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org she will make sure that it is forwarded to the appropriate staff person.
Position letters that are intended to be received by individual members of the Committee should be sent to each member individually and addressed to their Capitol office.
How do I track legislation?
If you have an e-mail address, you can go to http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/ and under "Bill Information" you can search for bills that interest you. You can also create a "subscription" list and receive e-mail notifications when there is activity on a bill that you are tracking.
