Advocating for CA Citrus Growers
CCM staff is experienced at working in the public policy and regulatory arenas on behalf of the citrus industry. From trade to water and every issue in between, CCM has the credibility and reputation to influence state and federal policies that impact citrus growers.
Federal Advocacy – We work closely with members of the Congress and federal agencies to secure funding for the Citrus Health Response Program to help underwrite survey work for the Asian citrus psyllid and Huanglongbing. CCM has engaged with members of Congress extensively on the issue of water and the need for greater accountability from environmental programs. CCM also works closely with the Department of Agriculture on trade-related matters and pest and disease issues.
State Advocacy – CCM is the industry’s advocate in our state’s capital, working with members of the legislature and regulatory agencies such as CAL EPA, Department of Pesticide Regulation, Department of Food and Agriculture, the Natural Resources Agency, and the Department of Industrial Relations to seek policies that promote CA citrus growers.
Political Action Committee – The CCM Political Action Committee raises funds for candidates who are committed to supporting the needs of CA’s citrus growers.
