CLIMATE CHANGE COMMITTEE

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA CLIMATE CHANGE FORUM – SEPTEMBER 14, 2019

Through the efforts of a special subcommittee on sea level rise, the Marin League Climate Change Committee is moving forward in its work with the California League’s Climate Change Task Force in drafting framework for two state-wide bills that will address issues around sea level rise. One bill will focus on development; the other one infrastructure. Currently underway are efforts to seek input at the legislative level and engage other League chapters working on this issue for input, support and recruiting additional legislators.

This effort will be part of the activities of Nancy Bell and Kiki LaPorta when they attend the League’s Northern California Climate Change Forum on September 14 in Sacramento, at which time Kiki will present the sub-committee’s progress.

We look forward to making valuable contacts at the Climate Change Forum and look forward to reporting back in the next Voter issue.

Thank you to Diz Swift, Program Director of the Califor-nia League’s Climate Change Task Force, who is playing an integral role in guiding us through this process.

Nancy Bell, Climate Change Committee
