Navigate California’s Expansive Regulatory System

Bills passed by the State Legislature and signed into law by the sitting governor are implemented by California’s many regulatory agencies and departments.

In turn, the relationships the Association maintains with regulatory agencies help sustain the health of the larger ecosystem for grocery retailers and their customers.
