In a bit of good news, we are happy to report that we have been working with the author’s office, environmental groups, labor, and several state agencies, to fix concerns related to SB 454 (Pavley; D-Agoura Hills), a measure which would have given the Energy Commission prosecutorial authority to go after those who fail to comply with California’s energy efficiency standards. Many parties expressed concern with giving new and broad powers to the energy agency and argued that it created unnecessary and duplicative powers with the State Contractor’s Licensing Board (CSLB). Agreeing with those concerns, the Senate Energy, Utilities & Communications Committee amended the bill to direct the authority to CSLB and to focus efforts on unlicensed contractors and those that are purposefully avoiding the permitting process and Title 24.
