CalChamber: Assembly Policy Committee to Hear ‘Job Killers’ Limiting In-State Energy Development​​​​​​​​​

Two California Chamber of Commerce-opposed “job killer” bills that limit in-state energy development will be heard in the Assembly Natural Resources Committee today.

Limits In-State Energy Development

  • AB 356​ (Williams; D-Santa Barbara) jeopardizes high-paying middle class jobs in resource extraction fields by severely restricting wastewater injection sites and requiring unnecessary monitoring of those sites.
  • AB 1490 (Rendon; D-Lakewood) drives up fuel prices and energy prices by imposing a de facto moratorium on well stimulation activities by halting the activity after an earthquake of a magnitude 2.0 or higher. (CalChamber, April 27, 2015)
