2022 - Assembly Bill 968 (Frazier, Jim), Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund: Wildfire Resilience: Community Certification (Dead)
Climate Change, Forestry and Wildfire Prevention
Office of Legislative Affairs
Would have required the California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA) to research and provide a report to the Legislature with recommendations for, ways in which a community that undertakes science‑supported wildfire resilience actions can be recognized with a peer-reviewed, community-level certification in order to acknowledge and motivate wildfire resilience activity, on or before January 1, 2023. The bill would have been contingent on a $2 million appropriation from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund each year through the 2022–23 fiscal year to CNRA for purposes of this research and report. Was not heard in the Assembly Natural Resources Committee.
