|« Run on Sun in the News||It's On - PG&E Declares War on Solar! - UPDATE »|
The office of State Senator Kevin De León (D-SD22) has announced that the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee will hold a hearing on February 21 in Los Angeles to discuss the implementation of Proposition 39. This may be the best opportunity for the LA solar community to have their voices heard about the legal and practical need for solar projects to be included in Prop 39 funding.
As we reported previously, the measure that Senator De León is advancing, SB 39, does not call for solar projects at all, a clear violation of both the spirit and the letter of Prop. 39 which made solar energy projects a showpiece during the campaign. Now the LA-based solar industry will have a chance to speak to our local legislator (and his subcommittee) to express our concerns.
Here are the details:
February 21, 2013
Murchison Elementary School - Auditorium
We look forward to seeing a strong turnout from solar supporters. Let’s respectfully remind Senator De León of the promises made during the Prop. 39 campaign!
