CA Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-41) Attempt to Undermine State’s Climate Goal

Responding to a request from KZSU Stanford Radio host, Michael Killen, Gene Nelson, PhD resonded ‘Yes. PacifiCorp has been laboring to create what they call a “Regional Energy Imbalance Market” or “Regional Load Balancing Authority” to sell PacifiCorp’s surplus dirty fossil-fired electricity to California since about 2003. CGNP’s written testimony to the CPUC in A.16-08-006 covered this topic extensively. Also, with the encouragement of Governor Brown’s office, Assemblyman Chris Holden (D-41) sneaked the PacifiCorp proposal into two pieces of noncontroversial legislation (AB 726 and AB 813) at the last minute during this year’s legislative session that ended on 15 September 2017. A firestorm of protests ensued, so Assemblyman Holden withdrew the sneaky legislation. Holden also prevented passage of Senate Pro-Tem Kevin DeLeon’s SB 100, a clean-energy bill which would have prohibited the importation of dirty fossil-fired electricity into California. More details on request.’ Dr. Gene Nelson –Government Liaison for Californians for Green Nuclear Power.
