Guided by our Public Policy Committee, CDSA works with legislators to enhance, improve, and sustain the services our members deliver. We track dozens of bills each year, targeting those that could impact regional center services and monitoring others that affect Californians with IDD. Our members’ voices are heard in our conversations with legislators and staff, our testimony at hearings, and our responses to proposed bills. CDSA works with a law and lobbying firm that supports our legislative strategy and strengthens our presence in the Capitol. To further broaden our impact, we also work alongside state organizations in the Lanterman Coalition to align our policy goals with other stakeholders in the IDD service system.
