The Legislature should designate the Resources Agency as the implementing entity responsible for coordinating the efforts of all entities involved in the restoration and mitigation activities for the Salton Sea.
Legislation has not been introduced to address this recommendation.
AB 148 (V. Perez) is pending in the Senate.
AB 148 (V. Perez, 2013) would require the Secretary of the Natural Resources Agency, in consultation and coordination with the Salton Sea Authority, to lead the Salton Sea restoration efforts. This bill would also authorize the Salton Sea Authority to undertake a feasibility study, in consultation with the Secretary.
