Legislative Advocacy

May contain: text

SDAO provides legislative representation and advocacy services on behalf of its members on issues that come before the Oregon Legislature and various state administrative agencies. The majority of these services are performed by SDAO’s Government Affairs staff. Policy direction and guidance is provided by the SDAO Board of Directors and SDAO’s Legislative Committee which meets twice a month during legislative sessions. In a typical legislative year, the SDAO Legislative Committee will review and act on approximately 1,000 pieces of legislation, each of which may have an impact on special districts.
