The California County Platform is a statement of basic policies on issues of concern and interest to California’s counties. CSAC’s policy committees and Board of Directors review the platform regularly, amending and updating when necessary.

In addition, the CSAC Policy Committees undertake review and update to their relevant platform chapters every two years, with action taken by the respective committee and Board of Directors.
