Homelessness Statewide

Governor Newsom will be in Oakland today to preview emergency actions to address homelessness in the state. The Governor aims to show off a state and local effort to deploy medical services, trailers and emergency tents to help the homeless. Part of the state response is the California Access to Housing and Services Fund, which has expedited the formation of a crisis response team and made state land assets available to address homelessness in California.

Public Utilities Commission Review

A state lawmaker is demanding an extensive review of the California Public Utilities Commission to determine whether lax oversight enabled neglect at PG&E that triggered catastrophic wildfires, a messy bankruptcy and exasperating blackouts. Assemblyman Adam Gray made the request yesterday, which could turn up the heat on the commission while it plays a key role in determining PG&E's future. (photo courtesy UC Davis)


Fire Victims Billing

2017 Wildfire victims may be receiving a bill from FEMA for a portion of nearly $4 billion the government says it's owed by PG&E - if the debt isn't resolved as part of the utility's bankruptcy case. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has asked for reimbursement from PG&E to cover costs from the government's response to recent fires. FEMA says it's compelled to seek compensation from PG&E. Otherwise, individual victims would be responsible if they get settlement funds that duplicate money already paid by the federal government. (photo courtesy wikipedia.org)


Homeless Solutions Discussion

Today, the issue of finding homes for homeless campers on the Joe Rodota Trail will be discussed behind closed doors by Sonoma County Supervisors. This morning's meeting will be to talk about the purchase of three homes to house homeless residents. Tomorrow, there will be an open meeting regarding temporary sanctions for encampments.

March 3rd Election

Campaigns for the March 3rd election date are picking up. Mail in ballots will be sent out in three weeks. Firefighting efforts will be represented with Measure G, which would generate nearly $51 million a year to update and consolidate fire services, and add 200 paid firefighters county wide.
