Sen. Tony Strickland Appointed to Renewable Energy Committee

The newly formed eight-member panel will study policy and implementation issues

Sen. Tony Strickland, R-Thousand Oaks, on Friday was appointed to the newly formed Senate Select Committee on Renewable Energy.

The eight-member panel has been directed to study policy and implementation issues affecting renewable energy, sustainable energy production and use, distributed generation and energy efficiency.

“I’m honored to be selected as a member of this committee. California has long been an innovative leader in clean-energy production,” Strickland said. “We need to use this valuable committee as an opportunity to make solid policy recommendations that will grow our economy and get Californians back to work.”

Strickland authored Senate Bill 463, Senate Bill 534, Senate Bill 542, Senate Constitutional Amendment 13 — all aimed at the promotion and production of clean renewable energy. The bills, which would have provided new jobs for Californians, were defeated in committee.

— Kerry Yoshida is legislative director for Sen. Tony Strickland, who represents California Senate District 19.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
