Workshops on 2020 Wildfire Mitigation Plans

It is expected that one or more members of the California Wildfire Safety Advisory Board will be reviewing the Wildfire Mitigation Plans in executing its statutory authority and a quorum of the Board may attend or participate in this workshop, pursuant to Government Code Section 11122.5(c)(4). As an independent board, it is not subject to the Commission’s ex parte rules so communications may occur between the Board members, CPUC staff and stakeholders. Pursuant to the requirements of the Bagley-Keene Act, there will be no formal action of the Board during these informational workshops.
