The Legislative Affairs Team oversees the District’s advocacy efforts at the local, regional, state, and federal levels.  This includes development of the District’s annual federal and state legislative programs which guide our advocacy efforts in Washington, DC and Sacramento.  Team members work closely with state and federal policymakers to influence transit legislation, appropriations, and administrative matters that impact AC Transit’s operations.  At the regional and local levels the team tracks and influences proposed transportation policies and funding measures, in addition to managing public education efforts for ballot measures designed to increase or augment AC Transit’s operating and capital revenues. 

Please e-mail any questions or concerns to Claudia Burgos, Director of Legislative Affairs and Community Relations. 

Thank you.
