Full service state advocacy representation for legislative, regulatory or budget-related issues

State Advocacy

Legislative Advocacy

Each year, thousands of bills are introduced in the California Legislature that can have critical consequences, positive or negative, for the people and sectors they impact. Whether clients are seeking to introduce legislation to make necessary change to the law or halt proposals that would be damaging to their interests, Arc Strategies stands ready to assist each step of the way. Arc Strategies' legislative advocacy services include:

  • Assisting clients in determining positions on legislation
  • Strategic planning and analysis of the political and policymaking climate to inform advocacy strategies
  • Drafting bill language and amendments
  • Securing bill authors, co-authors and support from Sacramento-based lobbying groups
  • Preparing and delivering testimony in legislative committees
  • Meeting with opposition groups to understand concerns and possibilities for compromise
  • Securing votes from legislators as bills move to the Assembly and Senate floors
  • Lobbying the Governor for signatures or vetoes

Regulatory Advocacy

California administrative agencies and departments make policy decisions that can be just as important as the actions of the Legislature. Arc Strategies understands how to navigate these settings to ensure our clients have a voice as rules and regulations are promulgated. Our regulatory advocacy services include:

  • Convening meetings with department heads and other agency officials
  • Drafting letters and memoranda to make positions known on key issues
  • Securing the assistance of legislators who may be influential on regulatory matters
  • Shaping regulatory actions by providing information and expertise to administrative agencies
  • Tracking, reviewing, and commenting on proposed regulations
