State Advocates
Kahn, Soares & Conway, LLP's George Soares and Louie Brown ensure that CANGC members are heard in the halls of the legislature and in the offices of state regulators. AAMSI's Legislative/Regulatory team consists of Chris Zanobini, Debbie Murdock, and Tad Bell who, in coordination with our state and federal legislative advocates, reviews, monitors and takes action on government actions affecting the industry. Call Chris Zanobini at (916) 448-3900 or

United as an industry, your voice can be heard. Every year, people become more disenchanted with big government, so we must work harder to be successful. We have two tools to accomplish our goals—CANGC Legislative Fund and CANGC Political Action Committee. These tools, paid for through contributions, allow us to represent the industry before legislative and regulatory bodies.
