Legislative Day is the day when REALTORS® from all over California travel to Sacramento and meet with their elected officials to discuss critical legislation that can affect REALTORS®, homeowners and private property rights. This year Legislative Day is on Wednesday, May 2.

Once REALTORS® arrive in Sacramento they will receive a special briefing from California Association of REALTORS® leadership and honorable guests, including California Governor Jerry Brown, who has confirmed that he will be speaking at the Morning Briefing.

A luncheon will follow the briefing. Dr. Tony Quinn, co-editor of California Target Book and non- partisan analyst of California’s legislative and congressional elections, will be the guest speaker at the luncheon with members of the Silicon Valley Association of REALTORS®. Dr. Quinn has 40 years experience with California state government. Currently, he is engaged in writing and elections analysis. During his career he has headed several public relations firms, directed the Office of Economic Research in the California Department of Commerce, served as Chief Consultant for Elections and Reapportionment and Policy Director of the Assembly Republican Caucus. He also served as a member of California Fair Political Practices Commission and assistant to the California Attorney General.

After lunch Silicon Valley REALTORS® will meet with their legislators, including Senators Elaine Alquist, Sam Blakeslee and Joe Simitian, and Assembly members Jim Beall, Paul Fong, and Rich Gordon. At these meetings REALTORS® will have the opportunity to discuss important real estate issues, such as private property rights, legal reforms and housing opportunity policies.

California REALTORS® are encouraged to attend Legislative Day. REALTORS® make up one of the largest groups that hit Sacramento every year.
