About the report library

The Commission selects its own study topics after receiving input from the Legislature, stakeholder groups, members of the public, and others. Our studies can include public hearings, staff research, interviews with affected Californians, site visits, and roundtable discussions.

After the study is completed, the Commission produces a comprehensive report detailing the findings and recommendations. All Commission reports are sent to the Governor and the Legislature for their consideration. All reports are also distributed to the media as well as individuals and interest groups that participated in the study process or are affected by the Commission’s proposals. The Commission then supports legislation and other actions that implement its recommendations.
