Legislative Plan

State and federal projects, programs, and legislation have major impacts on Merced County’s residents, businesses, and industry. This element seeks to educate local elected officials and residents, including traditionally underrepresented (i.e. Black, Hispanic, Asian American, American Indian / Alaskan Native, and Pacific Islander), and other community leaders about state and federal transportation planning and implementation issues, projects, and/or programs that may affect them. Member jurisdictions have asked to be kept informed of legislative developments, which information may consist of meetings, presentations, outside speakers, phone conferences with other regional MPOs, and research / report development.
