    On Thursday, October 24, 2013, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on climate change adaptation. The hearing will begin at 9:30 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    The Commission is examining governance and legal structures for California to adapt to a changing climate. At this hearing, the Commission will focus on California’s major metropolitan regions, Los Angeles, San Diego, the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento, which are beginning to design climate change planning and response strategies (independently from the state).

    The Commission will hear from Alex Hall, a University of California, Los Angeles professor and expert on regional climate impacts. The managing director for the Los Angeles Regional Collaborative for Climate Action and Sustainability and the executive director of Climate Resolve will discuss climate adaptation efforts in Los Angeles County. The Commission also will hear from the vice president of environment initiatives at the San Diego Foundation on addressing climate impacts in San Diego County. The Commission additionally will hear from the climate strategist for the Bay Area Joint Policy Committee and the chair and executive director of the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, who will discuss how the region is preparing for rising water. Finally, the executive director of the Local Government Commission and the executive director of the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District will testify about emerging regional adaptation efforts in Sacramento.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in Conference Room 175 on the first floor of 925 L Street in Sacramento.
