Capitol 'Fly-In' March 5-6 Sacramento 

CalAPA members are encouraged to attend our annual "Fly-In" to the state Capitol in Sacramento, where you can meet face-to-face with elected officials and key legislative staffers to discuss transportation funding and other issues of importance to the asphalt pavement indState Capitolustry in California.

This year's Fly-In is particularly important because of the historic passage in 2017 year of SB1, the 10-year, $52 billion transportation improvement measure, and the successful defeat last November of Proposition 6, which would have repealed the funding. It is imperative that our elected officials understand the critical need to get these funds converted to projects quickly so that Californians can see their tax dollars at work. In addition, there are many other bills and policy matters percolating at the State Capitol in Sacramento that may impact the asphalt pavement industry and merit our close attention and engagement.

The Fly-In will begin on Tuesday, March 5 at noon at the Esquire Grille restaurant in downtown Sacramento with a lunch and briefing by CalAPA's advocate, Jeff Sievers, on the latest on transportation-related bills and other policy matters the association is monitoring and may have a position on. The afternoon of Day 1 will be filled with appointments with elected officials and key legislative staffers.

 There will be an optional dinner Tuesday night at Morton's Steakhouse, 621 Capitol Mall from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., just a few blocks from the state Capitol. The Fly-In will resume the morning of Wednesday, March 6 with additional Capitol appointments. Breakfast is on your own. The Fly-In will conclude at noon.

All participants will be provided with briefing materials, which will include talking points, schedule of appointments and other important reference information.

The cost to the attend the Fly-In is $69 and includes lunch at the Esquire Grille. An optional dinner with a legislator at  Morton's Steakhouse, 621 Capitol Mall, is an additional $99. Contact CalAPA for sponsorship opportunities.
