CLCA Capitol Delegation Educates Lawmakers
Supporting water conservation, combatting the underground economy and getting ahead of blower bans topped the agenda when members of the CLCA Legislation Committee visited lawmakers at the state capitol in mid-April.
In individual meetings with lawmakers and their top staff members, committee members Megan Rios, Dave Norred, Ian Campbell and Jay Martinez, along with CLCA Executive Director Sandra Giarde, CAE, and legislative advocate Maria Garcia, presented the green industry point-of-view on topics important to landscape contractors.
Backed by a well-researched toolbox of facts and presentations, committee members educated lawmakers about the impact of proposed legislation on their businesses.
In the 2019 legislative session, CLCA’s Legislation Committee is monitoring – and speaking out about — more than 100 pieces of legislation that could impact landscape contractors (See details here.)
Added bonus: Both the Assembly and Senate were in session, and the CLCA delegation was officially recognized and welcomed.
