• In 2022, the Policy and Governance Program team provided ACOE staff with a series of Lunch-and-Learn workshops on California's legislative and budgetary processes. The training covered how bills and budget proposals progress through the process, who the key decision makers are and how to influence them, and what key legislative terms like "suspense file" and "gut-and-amend" mean.

    More capacity-building training will be offered in 2023.
