The San Joaquin Council of Governments has announced the opening of registration for the 2020 San Joaquin One Voice program, which will take place May 10 through 14, 2020 in Washington D.C.
San Joaquin One Voice is SJCOG’s legislative program for San Joaquin County promoting issues of regional significance to federal legislators and agencies through an annual trip to Washington, D.C.

Since 2000, San Joaquin One Voice has secured over $122 million in federal appropriations for transportation priorities such as roadway improvements, grade separations, transit capital, and airport improvement projects. In addition to federal dollars, the group has supported policy and regulatory reform that streamlines the way federal and state agencies work together. This eliminates unnecessary procedures and creates a collaborative relationship where government agencies and the business community can work seamlessly toward job creation for our communities.
The San Joaquin Council of Governments is a joint powers authority comprised of the County of San Joaquin and the cities of Stockton, Lodi, Manteca, Tracy, Ripon, Escalon, and Lathrop. The agency serves as the federally-designated metropolitan planning organization, the state-designated regional transportation planning agency, the implementing agency for the habitat conservation program, the local transportation authority (overseeing Measure K, the local half-cent transportation sales tax), and as a technical resource for the San Joaquin region.
