City of Cupertino’s Legislative Agenda
The City of Cupertino recognizes the need for an active legislative advocacy program focused on protecting and enhancing the interests of Cupertino’s residents and businesses. Staff monitors and reviews legislative advocacy efforts being undertaken by the League of California Cities. The League actively engages in legislative lobbying efforts at the State level on behalf of local municipalities. Cupertino actively monitors state legislation and takes appropriate action, when required, to protect the city’s interests and local legislative authority. Our legislative efforts include researching and monitoring state bills, preparing letters and related communications in response to proposed legislation, and working with our legislative representatives to promote the interests of our community.
