California Transit Association

Advocacy

Federal Lobby Day

Federal Lobby Day is the product of the Association’s efforts to bring attention to California’s transit needs and priorities among decision makers at the federal level. The Association conducted its first Federal Lobby Day in early 2013, when a small group of Association staff and leaders traveled to Washington, DC to meet with members of the state’s Congressional delegation and hosted an informational reception for lawmakers and their key staff members.

Federal Lobby Day 2020 will take place on May 11-13. The event is expected to include meetings with members of California’s congressional delegation, staff for key committees, leadership from the American Public Transportation Association, and the Federal Transit Administration. Among the topics discussed will be the Association’s priorities for the impending federal surface transportation reauthorization, the THUD appropriations bill, and federal support for zero-emission bus deployments.
