    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, January 27, 2011, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on California regulatory reform. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    In this study, the Commission is examining California’s regulatory review process. The goal of this study is to develop recommendations to improve clarity and accountability in how the state develops regulations, assesses their impacts prior to implementation and measures their effectiveness once in place. The Commission expects to learn from the experience of regulated industries, the view from state agencies and departments charged with developing or reviewing regulations and strategies employed by other governments at the city, state and federal level.

    The Commission will hear from James Sanchirico, an environmental economics professor at University of California, Davis, and Debra Cornez, Acting Director and Assistant Chief Counsel at the Office of Administrative Law. The Commission also will hear from Lynn Terry, Deputy Executive Officer for the California Air Resources Board, and William Pennington, Manager of the High Performance Buildings and Standards Development Office at the California Energy Commission. Finally, the Commission will hear from David Chidester, President and Owner of Central Cal Transportation.

    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 Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.
