Del Norte County's State and Federal Legislative Platform outlines the policy and budget priorities of the Board of Supervisors and establishes the basis for advocacy efforts at the State and Federal levels of the Executive and Legislative branches regarding legislation and regulation. It also provides general direction and authorization to the County Administrative Office and all other County departments, the County's legislative advocates and state and federal delegation members, as well as the public on positions of support or opposition to key legislative, fiscal, and policy initiatives that impact the way the County does its business.
The Board of Supervisors aims to adopt its Legislative Platform early in the year, prior to most legislation reaching advanced stages in order to effectuate maximum effect, however it is recognized that the State and Federal legislative and budgetary processes are fluid, dynamic, and iterative processes. As such, some additional legislative, regulatory and/or budgetary issues may arise after the adoption of this Platform, necessitating modifications to this document throughout the year which must be subsequently approved by the Board.
The Del Norte County Board of Supervisors recognizes the importance of advocating for its legislative and funding priorities in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.
