McGeorge Adjunct Professor Chris Micheli outside the California State CapitolToday’s podcast is a little bit different. Not only does today’s post feature video, rather than audio, it also features two of my colleagues – Robert Moutrie (Policy Advocate at the California Chamber of Commerce) and Laura Curtis (Legislative Advocate). I discuss with them their advice for lobbying committee staff and committee members in the California Legislature.

The advice includes when to lobby committee staff and what to bring to those meetings, when to lobby committee members, if you should treat meetings with the Chair and Vice Chair of a committee different than meetings with committee members, and what to do if the Chair of the committee opposes your client’s position on a bill.
