Fire prevention: electrical corporations: wildfire mitigation: workforce diversity.

Abstract

Under existing law, the Public Utilities Commission has regulatory authority over public utilities, including electrical corporations. Existing law establishes the Wildfire Safety Division within the commission. Existing law requires each electrical corporation to annually prepare and submit a wildfire mitigation plan to the division for review and approval, as specified. Existing law prevents an electrical corporation from diverting revenues authorized to implement the plan to any activities or investments outside of the plan and requires an electrical corporation to notify the commission and the Office of Energy Infrastructure Safety by advice letter of the date when the electrical corporation projects that it will have spent, or incurred obligations to spend, its entire annual revenue requirement for vegetation management in its plan, as specified. This bill would require an electrical corporation to also notify the commission and the office by advice letter a detailed summary of specified workforce development efforts completed in compliance with the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, including, but not limited to, a description of and data on the extent to which the electrical corporation advertises job openings to members of California Conservation Corps and members of community conservation corps, as defined. Under existing law, a violation of any order, decision, rule, direction, demand, or requirement of the commission is a crime. Because a violation of an order or decision of the commission implementing this bill's requirements would be a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program by creating a new crime. This bill would incorporate additional changes to Section 8386.3 of the Public Utilities Code proposed by AB 9 to be operative only if this bill and AB 9 are enacted and this bill is enacted last. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
