Spring Legislative Conference

The 2018 Spring Legislative Conference takes place May 22-23 in Sacramento. The event kicks off Tuesday the 22nd with an evening Legislative Reception, and culminates Wednesday the 23rd with the full conference program at the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria.

The conference program features experts from the legislative and regulatory realms discussing the latest approaches and priorities on the most important issues facing transit agencies today. With the theme Defending Our Future, this year's program will feature an in-depth discussion of Senate Bill 1 – both the opportunities presented by this monumental new transportation funding package, and threats posed by current efforts to repeal the fudning measure through a statewide ballot initiative.

In addition to analysis of other timely topics, attendees will get an update on the Association’s legislative priorities for the current year.
