Grassroots

California's Bipartisan Business Voice

Take Action Now

Grassroots action by affected individuals making their views known to members of the Legislature and other policymakers is extremely effective. We encourage letters, emails, personal calls and visits to your legislators. Influencing legislation may also require influencing respected associates or other constitutional officers.

Contact from a constituent heightens interest in a bill like no other communication. Your letters do make a difference on proposed laws.

Inside the Capitol

Inside the Capitol lets you know when a timely communication to your legislator or regulators can make a difference in policies adopted.
