CA governor signs AB 1775 and SB 874

CALIFORNIA Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signs AB 1775 and SB 874, which together bar the State Lands Commission from granting leases for new pipelines and infrastructure to companies looking to drill for oil off the state’s coastline. The Senate measure also bans the Commission from renewing an existing lease if that action would result in increased oil or natural gas production from federal waters (LOS ANGELES TIMES).
