    Notice of Meetings

    On Thursday, March 27, 2008, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on California’s water boards. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    This is the first of two planned hearings as part of the Commission’s review of the governance structure surrounding water in California, including the State Water Resources Control Board and the nine Regional Water Quality Control Boards. The Commission is reviewing the state’s water boards to identify reforms that will improve public outcomes through the boards’ interactions around California’s water quality needs. This hearing will provide a broad assessment of current water-related issues and policies in California. Witnesses also will discuss their roles and experiences at the federal, state and regional levels. A complete agenda is on the reverse.

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

    Also, the Commission will meet for dinner on Wednesday, March 26, 2008, at 6 p.m. at Mason’s Restaurant, 1116 15th Street, Sacramento.
