2024 Special Districts Legislative Days

With special districts facing existential threats to the funding they rely on to deliver essential services as well as major new costly mandates, this year’s Special Districts Legislative Days is a must attend event.

Lawmakers in Sacramento are making critical decisions that will impact the budget and operations of your district and your community. Special Districts Legislative Days is the only opportunity for all types of special districts, large and small, north and south, rural and urban to come together with one united voice. Issues like revenue, governance, labor, and public works matter to all districts whether they provide water, sewer, fire protection, parks, cemeteries, healthcare, mosquito abatement, ports, harbors, airports, libraries, or other essential services.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from California’s top decision-makers, build partnerships and strengthen the voice of local control. Past speakers have included California’s State Controller, State Treasurer, Secretary of State, Insurance Commissioner, Senate President pro Tempore, Assembly Speaker, Secretary of Natural Resources, Director of the Office of Emergency Services, State Auditor, Legislative Analyst, and Director of Finance.
