Update from the Capitol


Last week was spring recess‚ signifying a break in legislative session. Nonetheless‚ March was filled with engagements with lobbyists‚ constituents‚ and various organizations‚ all sharing their perspectives on different policies. Some recent meetings from the Capitol include:

California Tahoe Alliance: Team Dahle convened with this group to delve into legislative priorities. They presented a comprehensive transportation action plan aimed at alleviating traffic congestion and improving transportation infrastructure to reduce vehicle emissions‚ thereby safeguarding Lake Tahoe from pollution. Additionally‚ discussions revolved around addressing the challenge posed by an invasive species‚ the New Zealand Mud Snail‚ discovered in Lake Tahoe in 2023. Despite its minuscule size‚ akin to a grain of rice‚ this invasive species poses a significant threat‚ surviving up to fifty days out of water. Its likely introduction via personal watercraft or even fishing equipment underscores the critical need for public awareness and adherence to rigorous cleaning protocols when transitioning between water bodies. Preserving the beauty of natural assets like Lake Tahoe requires collective effort. Click here to learn more about proper cleaning protocols for personal watercraft to prevent the spread of invasive species in our waterways.

School Meals for All: In 2021‚ California pioneered free breakfast and lunch for all K-12 students‚ setting a historic precedent. Now‚ efforts are underway to further enhance this achievement through investments in school food infrastructure‚ staff training‚ and the provision of freshly prepared‚ locally sourced meals-vital for ensuring that students are adequately nourished to excel academically. Discussion during this meeting centered on fostering increased collaboration with local farmers‚ a particularly timely topic coinciding with National Ag Day. Explore this topic further here.

Farm Bureau: Team Dahle engaged with the Farm Bureau‚ emphasizing their advocacy for legislation supporting family farms. They also mentored agriculture students from Merced on effective engagement with legislators regarding agricultural issues during their visit. As a family in agriculture‚ we remain steadfast in our support for family farms and agricultural education. I eagerly anticipate another year of championing the interests of farmers and ranchers in the state legislature.

Stay tuned for more legislative updates.
