On April 19, 2012, the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), the Metropolitan Planning Organization responsible for developing the state and federally required Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) for the 22 cities and six counties in the greater Sacramento region, adopted its first joint MTP / Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) as required by Senate Bill 375. Thomas Law Group assisted SACOG during the administrative process leading to the approval of its MTP/SCS and certification of the associated Program Environmental Impact Report for the plan.
