Legislative Update

2023-24 Legislative Session Underway!

State legislators are at work at the Capitol (or at least in the temporary “swing space” while the Capitol building is undergoing renovation) with bill introductions happening daily. CALA staff is screening bill as they are introduced and CALA’s Public Policy Committee will be discussing them and making recommendations on positions and priorities to the CALA Board in early-March. CALA members will have an opportunity to talk directly to legislators and their staff about bills that effect senior living and your ability to serve residents at CALA’s Advocacy Day in early April.

What can CALA members do now?
