With input from member cities and counties, public and private sector leaders, labor leaders, SCAG’s team of independent economic advisors consolidated the information from individual county reports to prepare the Southern California Economic Recovery & Job Creation Strategy, which included a common set of regional priorities that help businesses, public agencies, and communities improve their economic viability with immediate and long-term recommendations.

As part of a broader legislative platform, SCAG’s efforts in economic recovery and job creation are founded on policies and initiatives adopted by the Regional Council that need the leadership and support of the California State Legislature and Congress to resolve challenges facing the SCAG region. SCAG has retained and collaborated with leading business and economic experts to interview business leaders, understand the challenges to expanding business and growing jobs in the region, and seek input on which of the myriad of challenges are common economic impediments across the region to job growth and investment in local communities.
