CSAC Advocates for Funding for Disaster Relief and Greenhouse Gas Reduction
The Budget Conference Committee, consisting of members from both the Senate and Assembly, convened for the first time on Wednesday May 30th. The committee will negotiate differences between budget changes proposed by the Senate and Assembly Budget Committees and help send a number of budget related measures to the floor of both houses for votes ahead of the June 15th constitutional budget deadline.
CSAC has sent two letters on AENR issues to the Conference Committee. One letter urges the allocation of funding from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) for several programs. The other advocates for the funding of debris removal waivers for Southern California counties that are still recovering from disaster.
