Established by state law, the mission of the California Senior Legislature is to help preserve and enhance the quality of life for older Californians and their families.

The 40 Senior Senators and 80 Senior Assembly Members are elected by their peers (persons 60 years of age and older) to represent seniors throughout the State.

CSL members submit legislative proposals each year designed to improve the lives of Californians age 60 and over.

The proposals are ranked at the CSL Annual Session held in October at the State Capitol.

The CSL operates under the rules of the Bagley-Keene Act of 2004.
