SB 1352: California Public Utilities Commission, Support

Recent events have shown us that an energy mix consisting of multiple fuel sources is key for ensuring that communities and first responders’ energy needs are met when disasters occur.

SB 1386: Protecting Fire Hydrant System Funding, Support 

Senate Bill 1386 reinforces the legal authority of cities and local water agencies throughout California to use property-related service charges for funding water services related to fire protection.

Request for 90-Day Postponement on Final Connect SoCal Plan Vote

Because of the current COVID-19 pandemic that has touched us all in some way we again, respectfully request a 90-day window to provide for further review of the 10,000-page plan.

SB 1373: State Highways, SR-241, Oppose

SB 1373 could limit TCA’s ability to fund this arterial improvement, which would provide regional traffic relief and an alternate route to the often-congested I-5 freeway.


SB 939 will put small property owners into foreclosure by forcing them to float rent for all tenants and gives restaurants the right walk away from a lease without squaring up for owed rent nor paying for property improvements.
