SVLG encourages members of the US Congress to embrace policy changes to improve the nation's global competitiveness and toward that end has prioritized six issues of significant importance to Silicon Valley . One of the issues is to reform the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX). Shellye Archambeau has been named champion of this issue for the organization.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was the keynote speaker at the SVLG Annual Public Policy Luncheon at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center on Friday, November 2.
