Orange County Community Colleges Legislative Task Force (OCCCLTF)

The District is a member of the Orange County Community Colleges Legislative Task Force (OCCCLTF), a coalition of the four community college districts in Orange County.  Together, we advocate for legislation, public policy and funding which affect student access to higher education, community college governance, and job training opportunities for more than 300,000 students in Orange County. Last year, the task force was successful in supporting and authoring several student veterans bills. South Orange County Community College District is chairing the legislative task force for 2012-2013. Click here for an overview of OCCCLTF membership, legislative priorities for 2012-2013 and outcomes from the 2011-2012 legislative session.
