CSDA Leg Days

CARPD is a proud Partner of the 2024 Special Districts Legislative Days, scheduled for May 21 - 22 at the  Sheraton Grand Sacramento, an interactive and informative two-day legislative conference in our State’s Capitol. 

As the California State Legislature wrestles with a projected $73 billion budget deficit and the courts and voters contemplate major constitutional actions on funding for essential services and infrastructure, Special Districts Legislative Days will once again provide a venue for all types of special districts to come together to understand and influence our shared public policy challenges.

Legislative Office Visits Are Back! For the first time since the pandemic, Special Districts Legislative Days will include pre-arranged legislative office visits so you can meet with Legislators and Capitol staff in the new Capitol Annex Swing Space. Attendees will be grouped with special districts from your region to advocate for special districts and the communities we collectively serve.
