    Speaking of the Attorney General’s Office, we thought it would be interesting to take a peek at the “Environmental Justice Unit” webpage.  EJ issues are a new policy area for the AG’s office and have been highlighted as a major focus of the office.  According to the top law enforcement official in the state, “The Attorney General is particularly concerned that local governments, in permitting new projects, consider potentially significant environmental impacts on communities already burdened with pollution.”  Click here to read more.

    BROAD COALITION OPPOSES AG INVOLVMENT IN SANDAG

    Posted by Crystal Whitfield | No Comments

    A broad coalition of groups has sent a letter to California Attorney General  Kamala Harris (D) expressing concern with a lawsuit she filed over SANDAG’s Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).  Sent in March, the AG still has not met with the coalition.

    The groups are “united in our concern about the lawsuit filed against the San Diego Association of Governments’ (SANDAG) Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS).  SANDAG’s plan meets all state-mandated carbon reduction requirements under SB 375 and was the product of extensive public input and review. Responsible, regional planning efforts should be allowed to proceed without intervention from the state.”
