AB 2076 (L. Rivas) Would establish the Extreme Heat and Community Resilience Program to be administered through the Integrated Climate Adaptation and Resiliency Program (ICARP), for the purpose of coordinating state efforts and supporting local/regional efforts to prevent and mitigate the impacts of, and reduce the public health risks of, extreme heat.
