(County Officials Testify)…It was this week

. And, it was before the Senate Environmental Quality Committee. It was in support of AB 1945, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006: Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund: Investment Plan introduced by Assemblyman Eduardo Garcia. The Bill seeks to improve access to programs funded by the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund by expanding the list of co-benefits and allowing the Counties of Imperial and San Diego to include daytime population numbers in the grant applications. Imperial County rates high among almost every aspect, they lose-out due to low population numbers. The Bill successfully passed out of the Senate Environmental Quality Committee and will now move on to the Senate Appropriations Committee.
