SCAG Regional Council Discusses How to Reduce Greenhouse Gases

Next Thursday, the SCAG Regional Council will be taking up the
California Air Resources Board staff recommendation of a 13% per capita
reduction in GHG emissions for the region by 2035. Can you come and
testify? We will be coordinating testimony so it's dynamic, fast-paced
and compelling. 

There are actually two back-to-back meetings and there will be public comment at both:
Thursday, September 2
11:00 am (arrive 10:30 get a seat) - 12:15 pm
    Joint meeting of the Regional Council and all the Policy Committees
12:15 - 2:00 -  SCAG Regional Council
SCAG Offices
818 W. 7th Street, 12th floor
Los Angeles, CA 90017
(across the street from the 7th Street Metro Red/Purple/Blue Line Station)
Background
We expect the SCAG Regional
Council to support the 13% target. But SCAG is getting pressure to
criticize the target from the Building Industry Association (BIA) and
the Southern California Leadership Conference (http://www.laedc.org/sclc/members.html).
The BIA is circulating a sign on letter and will no doubt be at the
meetings in force. Please mark your calendars and let me know if you
plan to come.
