Each year, the CLCC adopts a set of state and federal legislative priorities from those initiatives brought to its Advocacy Committee by CLCC members. In order for CLCC to endorse a proposal, there must be at least one member organization, in addition to CLCC, who will take the lead on lobbying for the initiative. The Advocacy Committee then determines in which of three categories each of the initiatives it endorses is placed:
- top priorities on which the CLCC's lobbyist will work, and on which we will testify and engage our grassroots network;
- those proposals on which the Council will testify and engage our grassroots; and
- those which we will monitor and about which we will inform our members.
CLCC’s “Conservation Agendas” for 2012-2014 are available below.
