California Air Resources Board “Public Consultation on Cap & Trade Auction Proceeds”
This is the ending that Queen Mary Nichols gives to this Public” Forum. The meeting started at 1:30 with 10 members on the dais, and 2 panels of about 10 people total. Public input was allowed from 4:10 to 5:00 p.m. When public comments started all members of the panels left, and one by one most members of the dais (2 were legislators) left until there were 2 people left.
What does Mary Nichols do when she doesn’t like hearing what the public has to say about the CARB AB32 plan? She abruptly ends the public consultation hearing!!! It is amazing that after driving 1 ½ hours to get to this meeting. Then we sat sat through 3 ½ hours of public officials and stakeholders testimony only to have most of the 11 officials ignore the public comments or leave during that period is shameful. The meeting started at 1:30pm in SAC.
