In this webinar, Dr. Jill Johnson from USC presented the scientific facts and data behind oil drilling harms in Los Angeles, Martha Dina Arguello from PSR-LA discussed talking points for giving public comment, and lastly, we covered how to participate in CalGEM’s pre-rulemaking process digitally.

Last year, Governor Newsom announced a rule-making process to strengthen health and safety regulations near oil drilling operations and Brian Nowick from the Center for Biological Diversity goes deeper into explaining this new rulemaking process. The state‚Äôs oil and gas regulatory agency — California Geological Energy Management, or CALGEM for short will be taking public comment directly at this email:CalGEMRegulations@conservation.ca.gov until April 10th. Please submit your comments about neighborhood oil drilling.
