Welcome to the Legislative Affairs and Intergovernmental Relations (LAIR) Branch of the Los Angeles County Chief Executive Office. LAIR consists of State and Federal Legislative Policy Development and Governmental Affairs; the Sacramento Advocacy Office; the Washington, D.C. Advocacy Office; and the Office of Protocol.
LAIR is the focal point of coordination of State and Federal legislative policy and strategy for the County. In consultation with the Board of Supervisors, and County departments, LAIR develops the County's legislative priorities and policies for consideration by the Board, and analyzes legislative proposals. The County's advocacy is handled on a day-to-day basis by the Sacramento and Washington, D.C. offices.
The Office of Protocol ensures that appropriate protocol is observed when foreign dignitaries visit Los Angeles County; maintains a liaison with the Los Angeles Consular Corps; promotes international business, tourism and cultural exchanges throughout Los Angeles County; and increases international understanding and cultural awareness.
