The Office of Legislation coordinates DTSC's action on all legislative matters and recommends appropriate action regarding legislative issues. This includes reviewing, analyzing, and monitoring proposed legislation that may impact DTSC; coordinating the development of DTSC-sponsored legislative proposals; representing DTSC before legislative committees; acting as a liaison to legislators, their staff, and outside advocates; and working with executive staff, legislative staff, and interest groups to develop strategies to pass or defeat bills. The Office of Legislation tracks around 200 bills each legislative session.
The Legislative Summary Report identifies and summarizes all legislation considered by the California State Legislature during a legislative session that directly or indirectly affects DTSC's mission and programs.
