The Valley Legislative Affairs Committee (VLAC), established at the staff level at each regional planning agency (RPA), is responsible for tracking legislation and exchanging information crucial in developing a support/oppose/amend position for each RPA. VLAC coordinates annual Valley Voice advocacy trips to Washington, D.C., and Sacramento. During 2015-2016, Valley Voice went to Washington, D.C. in September and Sacramento in April.
The Merced County Association of Governments hosted the annual RPC Fall Policy Conference in October 2015 at Fish Camp. Each year, the conference offers an opportunity for agency staff, elected officials, and other leaders to network and share information about state and federal activities.
