Specialties: Propositions 13, 218, Proposition 26 implementation, and the state budget. Tax policy, especially relating to jobs and the economy. This includes: regulations, broad-based tax categories, California compared to other states, pensions, and bond debt. Tax reform including tax credits and the overly progressive nature of California's income tax. Property rights including eminent domain abuse, rent control and redevelopment.

Monitor hundreds of pieces of legislation as the official lobbyist at the Association by writing position letters and testifying in legislative committees.

Worked on various campaigns, including Proposition 98 (eminent domain) in 2008 and Proposition 1A (tax increases) in 2009 doing coalition building and communication outreach with various impacted interests. In 2010, I was actively engaged on five propositions (20, 21, 25, 26, 27) directly on behalf of the campaigns doing radio and print interviews, speeches before different groups, and writing letters and articles for print media.

Compile an annual Report Card scoring all 120 members of the Legislature on issues important to HJTA.

Routinely represent the Association at various bi-annual Republican/property rights conventions. Regularly speak to Republican and taxpayer groups.

Coordinated a Taxpayer Group conference in 2008, featuring the participation of over 25 different groups from across California. This was the first time in recent memory local taxpayer groups were able to gather together to share insight and ideas.

Allison Olson: guest speaker for SRWF on June 5, 2017.

Allison Olson, CFRW Advocate with the California Legislature, attends committee hearings and maintains working relationships with legislators as part of her duties.  She works with the volunteer CFRW Legislative Analysts who assist her in reviewing bills introduced in the legislature. After CFRW takes an official position on a bill, our Advocate is our liaison between the membership and the legislature to advocate our position.  An electronic weekly legislative update is distributed to our members, keeping members informed and current as well as providing ACTION ALERTS when it is appropriate to ask members to write letters, call in to local radio stations and get the word out on good or bad legislation.
     The CFRW Advocacy Office is the eyes and ears for our State Legislature. Through our full time office staff and volunteers, the Federation has a say in the direction taken by our elected representatives.  CFRWs Advocacy program is unique in the whole NFRW structure and becomes more vital than ever by working with Republican legislators and keeping the members informed and involved.  CFRW has evolved into a most efficient voice for women involved in government.  The program has enabled us to seat many women in political appointments, influence legislation and make our presence felt.
     The ADVOCACY PROGRAM GOALS are to influence legislation and maintain a CFRW presence in state government in accordance with CFRW objectives.

Day at the Range

Firing Range Safety


In effort to honor our Second Amendment and the rights it bestows upon us, nearly half our group spent an afternoon at a local shooting range owned and operated by veterans of each military branch. We spent over an hour learning about gun safety, and hands-on training in loading, unloading, and otherwise properly handling several types of weapons. We then spent the rest of our time target shooting with our own personal "assistant", who continued to provide more detailed training on hand position and other nuances. It was a fantastic outing with as many personal takeaways as there were attendees. Some have been shooting most of their lives, others hadn't shot in decades, and some had never held a gun before. Those with experience enjoyed helping and watching the others, and as for the rest, although everyone loved the "field trip", about half won't shoot again, and half will. Overall: a fantastic experience.
