Sierra Nevada Conservancy.


Existing law establishes the Sierra Nevada Conservancy in the Natural Resources Agency, and prescribes the membership and functions and duties of the conservancy. Existing law requires that the governing board of the conservancy consist of 13 voting members and 3 nonvoting liaison advisers, appointed or designated in accordance with specified procedures. This bill would require that 2 members of the Senate, appointed by the Senate Committee on Rules, and 2 members of the Assembly, appointed by the Speaker of the Assembly, meet with the conservancy and participate in its activities to the extent that such participation is not incompatible with their positions as Members of the Legislature.
