BrandGOV provides advice, counsel and assistance to Transportation Authorities on state legislative issues involving transportation policy, transportation funding, infrastructure finance and project delivery, congestion management, transportation-related land use, climate change and clear air issues.
We suggest, develop, and help implement legislation supporting the Transportation Authority’s goals and objectives. Schedule meetings with key offices and individuals for Transportation Authority Commissioners and staff, leading the preparation for those meetings, and actively facilitating those meetings. Advise staff on effective lobbying strategies.
We ensure that the Transportation Authority maintains a visible presence in Sacramento, including maintaining regular contact with the Office of the Governor, members of the Legislature and committee staff, state agencies and departments, and advocacy organizations. Act as liaison, as needed and requested by the Executive Director or staff, to the Senate and Assembly Transportation Committees of the Legislature, the Office of the Governor as well as to the Caltrans, the ARB and the CTC.
BrandGOV provides timely responses to legislative requests for information on Transportation Authority initiatives or bills affecting the Transportation Authority. Represent the Transportation Authority’s interests with testimony before the legislature or in individual meetings with legislators and staff, as directed. Remain up to date with the Transportation Authority’s legislative platform, Board actions, and positions on legislation and proposals by state agencies. Build alliances and coalitions with like-minded agencies and advocates to advance the Transportation Authority’s interests.
