Raise Your Political Voice! Join the CLSA State Political Action Committee Today

What is the California Life Sciences Association State Political Action Committee?

The California Life Sciences Association State Political Action Committee (CLSAPAC) is a bipartisan state political action committee established to solicit voluntary political contributions. The CLSAPAC enables companies and individuals to combine their resources to support state-level candidates who demonstrate a dedication to understanding California’s life sciences industry, encouraging the industry to flourish in the state, and fostering drug, device, and diagnostics innovation. Unlike federal law, corporations are allowed under California law to make political contributions to a state PAC.

What is the purpose of the CLSAPAC?

The purpose of the CLSAPAC is to elevate awareness of the life sciences industry’s goals through increased education and participation in the political process in California. The CLSAPAC aims to educate, inform, and elect candidates to state office who will support and promote California’s life sciences industry. The CLSAPAC allows the life sciences industry to support candidates for office who share our values and want to help our industry conduct business in California; develop, commercialize, and market new medical products; and maintain a highly skilled workforce.

Why contribute to the CLSAPAC?

The CLSAPAC allows you and your company the opportunity to unite with other industry leaders to ensure that Sacramento policymakers hear your views. Elected officials in California have direct influence on how you and your company conduct business in the state and how your products are developed, regulated, and marketed in California. By contributing to the CLSAPAC, you can help ensure that these key officials understand and appreciate the unique challenges facing medical innovators.

Who may contribute to the CLSAPAC?

Any individual or company that has an interest in maintaining a business, legal, and regulatory climate that supports and advances life sciences innovation in California may contribute to the CLSAPAC.
