AB 11 (Ward) Existing law requires the Strategic Growth Council to establish and administer a regional climate collaborative program to assist under-resourced communities in a region to access statewide public and other grant moneys for climate change mitigation and adaptation projects. This bill would have required the Council to establish up to 12 regional climate change authorities to coordinate climate adaptation and mitigation activities in their regions and coordinate with other regional climate adaptation authorities, state agencies, and other relevant stakeholders. STATUS: DIED 1/31/22 pursuant to Art. IV, Sec. 10(a) of the Constitution (failed to meet deadline).
