CalTRUST, co-sponsored by the League of California Cities and the California State Association of Counties, is a statewide investment pool for California public agencies. As part of its ongoing commitment to providing educational tools, CalTRUST, is offering a no-cost webinar on proposed new ultra-short fund. CalTRUST webinars are open to all California cities, counties, special districts, and nonprofit agencies.
Some of the most significant benefits of League membership for cities since 1988 have flowed from the League’s co-sponsorship of the California Statewide Communities Development Authority (CSCDA). CSCDA recently issued $18,460,000 in tax-exempt multifamily affordable housing bonds for Vintage at Napa Senior Apartments in Napa.
Registration has just opened for the League’s Annual Legislative Action Day. This one-day event on April 18 will bring hundreds of city officials to Sacramento for a few day of learning about top issues, meetings with legislators in the Capitol and networking with colleagues.
Legislative policy committee hearings are now underway in the Capitol. In addition, the Legislature continues to hold a number of oversight and informational hearings on a variety of policy areas of interest to cities.
