On April 18, the Assembly Natural Resources Committee passed RCRC-sponsored Assembly Bill 2878 (Aguiar-Curry), which helps achieve the state’s forest health and wildfire risk reduction goals by increasing the productive use of forest waste through energy generation and wood products manufacturing. RCRC is co-sponsoring the measure with the Placer County Air Pollution Control District. AB 2878 helps achieve the state’s forest health and wildfire-risk reduction goals while also helping to improve local energy resiliency and workforce development.
AB 2878 next goes to the Assembly Committee on Utilities and Energy, chaired by Assembly Member Eduardo Garcia. RCRC’s letter of support is available here. RCRC strongly encourages individual counties to send letters in support, a template for which can be downloaded here.
