SB 1463 Clears the Assembly's Utilities and Commerce Committee

For several months now I have been testifying before the State Legislature in support of SB 1463 which Laguna Beach had introduced in February to promote greater fire safety mitigation measures by utility companies in high risk fire areas like Laguna.  My most recent testimony in support of the bill can be viewed at the attached link. http://calchannel.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=7&clip_id=3845&meta_id=148452  Click on SB 1463.

The bill has been approved by the State Senate and today we received a unanimous vote at our first committee in the Assembly.  Next week we have a big test in the Assembly Natural Resources Committee where we are introducing amendments to strengthen the bill.
