Oil News Around California
A GLOBAL ENERGY CRISIS, AN AMERICAN SOLUTION
Senator Grove needs your support to expand oil production in California and protect our state’s energy security – SB15
Senator Grove needs your support to expand oil production in California and protect our state’s energy security. Her bill SB 15 will express the intent of the Legislature to prohibit the import of crude oil into California if the source of the oil is a foreign nation with demonstrated human rights abuses, or a foreign nation with environmental standards that are lower than those in California. It makes no sense to send $25 billion a year to foreign countries that do not share our values when that oil production can be done in California.
The bill has been sent to the Senate Environmental Quality Committee and will be heard on March 29, 2023. The committee has moved up the deadlines for submitting letters of support to Wednesday, March 22 by 5:00 pm. We would be grateful if you could submit a letter of support to the committee through their portal at: https://calegislation.lc.ca.gov/Advocates/ [r20.rs6.net]
Attached is your previous letter of support for SB 1319, as well as a draft letter, although just a few sentences in support would also be fine. If you can’t make the Wednesday deadline, please submit when you are able to. The bill has been referred to a second committee and will be heard there in April.
Thank you for your help.
