The Exchange Contractors Political Action Committee (ECPAC) was founded in 2004. The purpose of the organization is to influence the political landscape as it relates to farming, property rights, agriculture and water. Corporations, organizations, individuals that are US Citizens, and other ag-related entities may also contribute and support these efforts. An oversight committee oversees the ECPAC.
ECPAC is a non-profit, non-governmental organization governed by a volunteer oversight committee. A President and Treasurer provide leadership and direction. Landowners, farmers and contributors working in the San Joaquin River Contractors Water Authority service area are eligible to serve.
Your support helps protect property rights, water rights and California Agriculture.
Our advocacy efforts depend on your financial support. Pleases consider making a contribution to ensure California Agricultural interests are at the table. Your financial support promotes and safeguards California Agriculture, national security and food safety.
Your contribution is greatly appreciated and will be allocated to either the STATE or FEDERAL Exchange Contractors PAC based on the rules and regulations that govern those contributions and corresponding expenditures. The allocation formula may change if any contribution would cause a contributor to exceed the contribution limit to one of the committees. You may also specify a different allocation in accordance with the guidelines below.*
Our efforts directly support the San Joaquin River Exchange Contractors legislative priorities including water rights, property rights and policymaker education. Recommended Contribution Levels are as follows:
