Legislative Affairs

Purpose

Throughout the year, the United States Congress and State Legislature propose and enact legislation, some of which affects local municipal government. The City of Rosemead recognizes the need for active legislative engagement at the local, state, and federal levels to enhance the interests of Rosemead’s residents and businesses. City officials maintain close relationships with Rosemead’s state and federal representatives.

There are times when it is in the City’s interest to take a position on proposed legislation. Our City Council follows our City’s Legislative Platform Policy for legislative protocols and processes.

Priorities and Process
