Sacramento - On Sept. 4, Senator Tony Strickland (R-Thousand Oaks) was appointed to the newly formed Senate Select Committee on Renewable Energy. The eight member panel has been directed to study policy and implementation issues affecting renewable energy, sustainable energy production and use, distributed generation, and energy efficiency.

"I'm honored to be selected as a member of this committee. California has long been an innovative leader in clean energy production," Strickland said. "We need to use this valuable committee as an opportunity to make solid policy recommendations that will grow our economy and get Californians back to work."

Senator Strickland authored SB 463, SB 534, SB 542, SCA 13, all aimed at the promotion and production of clean renewable energy. All four of the bills would have provided new jobs to Californians who desperately need them, but they were defeated in committee.

Tony Strickland represents California Senate District 19, which includes portions of Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties.
