Border Legislative Conference (BLC)

The Border Legislative Conference (BLC) serves as a binational forum in which legislators can exchange best practices and identify policy solutions addressing the complex issues along the 2,000-mile U.S. – Mexico border region. Providing a focused and ongoing dialogue among state legislators of the 10 U.S. – Mexico border states, the BLC fosters regional collaboration and mutual understanding. 

Membership in the BLC is comprised of legislators from the ten states along the U.S.-Mexico border. These states include California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas in the U.S., and Baja California, Sonora, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, and Tamaulipas in Mexico. These members are selected by and serve at the pleasure of their respective appointing authorities.

For more information on the BLC, please contact Martha Castañeda, Director of Policy & International Programs.
