San Joaquin One Voice®
This is our legislative advocacy program for San Joaquin County that promotes issues of regional significance to federal legislators and agencies through an annual advocacy trip to Washington, D.C. The purpose of the program is to advocate for increased funding and/or new or amended legislation for issues and projects of regional significance to the San Joaquin region.

Do you have transportation issues in your community that you would like discussed at the federal level? Do you have a priority project that impacts the region and you want local elected officials, business leaders, and stakeholders to discuss with our Congressional and federal representatives? 

If so, SJCOG is issuing a call for projects for the 2019 advocacy trip. Since SJCOG is a transportation planning agency, our focus is on transportation priorities and projects. However, the SJCOG Board will continue to review all other project requests as has been done in previous cycles - even if they are not transportation focused. 

Please submit any proposed projects that you may have in on the project request form. The information will be used to help educate federal elected officials, administration staff, and other decision makers. All proposed recommendations must be submitted by February 28, 2019 COB

If you plan to resubmit the same project request for consideration that was submitted last year, please make sure that you provide an updated version for review and consideration. We encourage new regional priorities as well.  Furthermore, if your agency is submitting more than one project request for consideration, please identify which is the number one priority followed with the 2nd, 3rd, etc.

The Board will review and select the priorities at their March meeting.
