Welcome to the Joint Legislative Committee on Climate Change Policies

Committee Jurisdiction: The Joint Legislative Committee on Climate Change Policies (JLCCCP) was created in 2016 by AB 197 (E. Garcia). The JLCCCP was established to provide ongoing and permanent oversight over the implementation of the state's climate policies. Consisting of at least three Senators and three Assemblymembers, this committee is required to make recommendations concerning the state's programs, policies, and investments related to climate change. The JLCCCP is also authorized to establish a panel of experts to provide an independent analysis of the state policies. The committee is uniquely positioned to connect the jurisdictions of several legislative standing committees, including those that have the issues of air quality, transportation, energy, and local government within their jurisdiction. The JLCCCP provides a critical perspective that is necessary to oversee integrated climate change policies throughout the activities of many state, regional, and local agencies.

The Joint Legislative Commitee on Climate Change Policies is located in the State Capitol, Room 2013 and the phone number is (916) 319-2058.
