The Moreno Valley City Council has adopted a Council Goal of Advocacy, which directs the development of cooperative intergovernmental relationships and forceful advocacy of City policies, objectives, and goals to appropriate external governments, agencies and corporations.
Consistent with the Council’s Advocacy Goal, the City’s legislative advocacy program has been active since 1995. Each two-year legislative session, the City Council determines their advocacy priorities and adopts a Legislative Platform.
The Legislative Platform provides City officials, staff, and legislative advocates with general “Support” or “Oppose” direction regarding the most important topics and issues to pursue. Once adopted, the Legislative Platform eliminates the need for the City Council to review and take a position on each and every proposed bill. This enables City staff to respond quickly to the fast-paced state and federal legislative process. The statements expressed in the Legislative Platform are general so that they can be applied to the many forms that legislative issues may take.
