Wildfire Survivors and County Supervisors to Speak Out about Utility Liability Law

Jul 9, 2018


County Supervisors join wildfire survivors in a call for action against legislative changes to utility liability law and a commitment to partner with the state on fire-prevention efforts to urge caution about legislative efforts.

Legislative leaders and the Governor’s Administration announced the convening of a Conference Committee to discuss potential changes to laws related to wildfire preparedness, response and wildfire liability. Wildfire survivors and counties across California have significant concerns about changes to utility liability laws that could be considered as part of the recently announced legislative Conference Committee. On July 5, in preparation for the committee, the Legislature moved SB 901 (Dodd) to be used as a potential vehicle for any proposed changes to law. Current liability laws, including inverse condemnation, provide a strong incentive for utilities to take action and invest in critical safety measures that protect ratepayers and residents.

The California State Association of Counties is the voice of California’s 58 counties at the state and federal level.
