9th Annual Green California Summit
The 9th Annual Green California Summit, held on Wednesday, January 29, 2014, brought together leaders in the environmental community, allies, and legislative leaders to plan for 2013. Together we addressed priority environmental issues including climate change, fracking, cleaner vehicles, and water quality and conservation.
The Summit opened with thoughtful remarks from freshmen Assemblymembers Brian Dahle, Cristina Garcia, Lorena Gonzalez, and Mark Stone. During lunch California Secretary of Natural Resources John Laird spoke about some of the urgent environmental challenges California is facing, including the drought, and how the Natural Resources Agency is working to address these issues. And throughout the day, environmental advocates and allies shared strategies for the big environmental issues coming up this year, as well as stories about past legislative successes.
