Governor Brown Signs SB 380

I want to thank Governor Brown for signing SB 380, a vital tool for ensuring the future safety of the residents in proximity to SoCal Gas' Aliso Canyon storage facility. This bill sends a strong message that negligence of community and environmental protections will not be tolerated.
The bill requires the inspection of all Aliso Canyon gas storage wells and a multi-agency sign-off as to their ability to operate safely.
In February, I testified in Sacramento before the State Assembly Utilities and Commerce Committee in favor of the bill and authored a resolution asking the City of Los Angeles to support the bill which was unanimously passed by the Los Angeles City Council in February.
