The California Senior Legislature (CSL) is comprised of dedicated community volunteers representing all 58 counties in the state, and we're asking for your support! The CSL is primarily funded through a voluntary check off on the California State Income Tax Return - identified as the "California Fund for Senior Citizens" (CODE 402 of your State Income Tax Form). AB 247 (Wagner and Lieu) extends the California Fund for Senior Citizen's tax check-off from January 1, 2015, to January 1, 2020.

The California Fund for Senior Citizens contributions are distributed by the Franchise Tax Board to the California Senior Legislature (CSL) to accomplish the following objectives:
(1) Identify and prioritize senior citizen's concerns and needs;
(2) Develop proposals in response to those needs; and,
(3) Advocate for the inclusion of those issues in the legislative proposals in the California State Legislature.
Contributions support the development of legislative proposals seeking to improve services and programs addressing a variety of issues such as affordable health care access, elder abuse prevention, insurance consumer protection and community-based long-term care services and supports.
