    County of Santa Barbara Seeks Public Input on Draft Legislative Platform for 2024

    The County of Santa Barbara Legislative Program Committee has drafted a 2024 platform of prioritized legislative principles, specific issues, projects and programs that warrant targeted advocacy, funding requests, and/or legislation by the County. Public review and input on the 2024 draft Legislative Platform is welcome prior to October 19, 2023. The Legislative Program Committee is scheduled to review and approve the 2024 Legislative Platform on November 2, 2023, for full Board of Supervisor consideration.

    Established in 1991, the Legislative Program Committee is an advisory body to the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors. A dynamic program of County sponsored legislative actions is developed and tracked by the Committee with the assistance of County departments and legislative advocates in Washington, D.C. and Sacramento. The Committee meets almost monthly and public comment is welcome. Each year, the Committee drafts a proposed Legislative Platform that is recommended to the Board of Supervisors for subsequent review and approval.

    Once the Legislative Platform is adopted by the Board, a variety of advocacy strategies are used to advance the identified principles and Legislative Platform Planks. Pending legislation of interest to Santa Barbara County is tracked and updates of the status are provided continuously by State and Federal legislative advocates to the Legislative Program Committee and the Board of Supervisors.

    The draft platform is available on the County Executive Office website: https://content.civicplus.com/api/assets/45cd0950-54e5-4b57-b275-1bdc4b24d172

    If you wish to provide input on the legislative platform, please contact Jasmine McGinty by email at jmcginty@countyofsb.org or by phone at 805-448-4028 by Thursday, October 19th, 2023.
