Welcome to the Council of State Governments West (CSG West) website. We hope that you will find the numerous resources on the website valuable. In the Resource Center and Publications sections you will find policy papers, webinars, access to data about your state, and other tools to assist you in your role as a legislator. We are here to serve Western legislatures, if we can be of assistance please feel free to give us a call at 916-553-4423.


As 2014 Chair of CSG West, I look forward to working with legislators, legislative staff and other stakeholders in the West to stimulate dialogue and identify solutions to address opportunities and challenges in our shared region. I also invite you to attend the CSG West & CSG National Joint Annual Conference that will convene August 9-13th in Anchorage, Alaska. The meeting will provide a great platform for regional cooperation and the sharing of capitol ideas.


Thank you for visiting and please let us know if we can be of any assistance.




Representative Craig Johnson (AK)
