LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE ACTIVITIES

During a two-year legislative term, the Legislative Committee reviews thousands of bills and takes positions on dozens of measures affecting POUs and water agencies.

Working together, we influence nearly every piece of legislation affecting POUs and water agencies.

REGULATORY COMMITTEE ACTIVITIES

The Regulatory Committee directs CMUA positions and serves as a forum for member discussions about regulatory issues that may impact members’ operations. CMUA convenes more than 20 member committees, subcommittees and working groups focused on a wide range of energy and water issues of interest to our members.

Working together, we shape every regulatory proceeding we engage in.
