Legislative/Regulatory Issues

One of our major roles in the Government Affairs Department is to monitor the actions of the U.S. Congress, the California State Legislature, local city councils, as well as actions by numerous federal, state, regional and local government agencies. What they do may affect how we operate our three divisions – – Maritime, Aviation and Commercial Real Estate or other Port operations.

We also advocate for policies and funding in support of our mission, so that we can continue to create economic vitality, jobs and waterfront enjoyment for Oakland and the region.
