Office of Legislative Affairs
The Department's Office of Legislative Affairs (OLA) primarily acts as the liaison between the Department and Legislature, coordinating all Department matters relevant to legislation. OLA has a leadership role in planning, developing, and implementing the Department's legislative goals and strategies; notifying legislative offices of Department initiatives; identifying legislation of interest to the Department; and monitoring the status of legislative proposals.
OLA coordinates and communicates DCA's response to inquiries from individual members of the Legislature, prepares for legislative hearings, and facilitates meetings between members of the Legislature and Department officials.
To ensure appropriate responses to legislative matters, please refer all legislative inquiries to OLA for appropriate coordination and response.
