Government Affairs

Sierra Business Council’s Government Affairs team works with local, regional, and statewide partners to advocate for policies that enhance the communities, economy, and environment of the Sierra.

Sierra Business Council’s Government Affairs team advocates on wildfire protection, watershed restoration, climate change, internet access, affordable housing, jobs, sustainable outdoor recreation, and other issues affecting the communities, economies, and environment of the Sierra.

SBC monitors and weighs in on California state policy and occasionally federal policy. Whether it’s tracking agency grant programs, meeting with legislators, developing partnerships, weighing in on draft regulations, commenting on legislation, testifying in hearings, or campaigning to pass ballot measures, SBC’s advocacy network is standing up for the Sierra. The Government Affairs team accepts requests for advocacy support, coordination or partnership on a continuous basis. For more information, contact Government and Community Affairs Director, Brittany Benesi.
