Housing, Health & Transportation

About

For nearly 50 years, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group has worked alongside our member companies to shape a vision of the region as the seat of the Innovation Economy. Through engagement on policy, legislation, and initiatives at the local, state and national level, we’re building on our legacy of success to build a better region for businesses, workers, and the community. Our Housing, Health & Transportation Policy Team has achieved significant improvements in everything from access to telehealth services to advocating for thousands of homes to be built for workers to bringing airlines from Asia to San Jose. We have championed transportation measures over the years, securing funding for transit improvements, congestion relief, and more. The Leadership Group has been actively involved in BART expansion, and recently celebrated the opening of new stations. In 2020, we led a measure across three Bay Area counties that saved Caltrain. We will continue to use our influence, experience and combined voice to emphasize the importance of these issues moving in the future.
