Legislative Advocacy

Capitol DomeEach year, STA staff monitors state and federal legislation that pertains directly to transportation and related issues. The STA Board-adopted Legislative Platform also serve as a guideline for legislative trips to Sacramento and Washington, D.C. STA staff regularly updates the STA State and Federal Legislative Matrix that lists bills staff is currently monitoring and any position the STA has taken.

To help ensure the STA's transportation policies and priorities are consensus-based, the STA's Legislative Platform is first developed in a draft form and then distributed to member agencies, members of our federal and state legislative delegations, and STA's Technical Advisory Committee and SolanoExpress Transit Consortium for review and comment prior to adoption by the STA Board.

On February 8th, 2017, the STA Board approved the 2017 Legislative Platform.

STA staff regularly updates a matrix listing legislative bills of interest.
