Garcia Holds Climate Change Oversight Committee Hearing

Thursday, July 6, 2017

Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D-Coachella), Chair of the Joint Legislative Committee on Climate Change Policies, convened a special informational hearing of the Committee to look deeper in to Assembly Bill 197. AB 197 created the Committee and requires the Committee to “ascertain facts and make recommendations to the Legislature concerning the state’s programs, polices, and investments related to climate change.” Assemblymember Garcia opened the meeting by saying, “It is my hope that our discussion today will illuminate what’s working as well as opportunities to further reduce emissions in our communities moving forward.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
