Legislative and Advocacy Committee

Status/former name
Legislative and Governmental Relations Committee

The Legislative and Advocacy Committee (LAC) is responsible for providing the ASCCC President with background information on all legislation related to academic and professional matters. Using equity-minded, inclusive research and analysis through a student-centered lens, the LAC will provide the ASCCC President and the Executive Committee with recommendations on such legislation. The LAC identifies existing ASCCC positions and relates them to proposed legislation. The LAC is also responsible for providing legislative alerts to the local academic senates, identifying liaison persons to contact legislators, and providing support to local academic senates regarding California's legislative process as it has bearing on academic and professional matters. It is the goal of the LAC to provide the ASCCC President and the Executive Committee with the resources to ensure that the ASCCC is recognized as the voice of authority with the California Legislature, Legislative Analyst’s Office, Department of Finance, and Governor's Office in the areas of academic and professional matters.

The LAC in consultation with the ASCCC President plans and participates in advocacy training and in the annual ASCCC Legislative and Advocacy Day.
