Welcome to the California State Legislature Rural Caucus website!

Rural Caucus Banner

The bipartisan, bicameral Rural Caucus was formed in January, 2003, to address policy issues and concerns of rural areas and communities in the State of California. The needs of rural areas can, and have in the past, been either ignored or not prioritized by the State Legislature. Rural legislators lack political clout and the numbers needed to compete with the more powerful legislators that represent urban areas. Representation by the Rural Caucus will serve to ensure a voice for rural communities, which will be a focal point and direct avenue for rural residents and organizations to carry their message, concerns and needs to the entire California State Legislature.
