Monrovia Assemblyman's Disaster Prep Bill Approved by Assembly Committee

Assemblymember Anthony Portantino's bill to improve emergency and disaster preparedness in California was unanimously approved today 12 to 0 in the Assembly Utilities and Commerce Committee.
 
AB 1650 requires public utilities to hold comprehensive disaster preparedness meetings every two years with the counties and cities they service in order to improve readiness and better prepare for natural disasters.
 
The San Gabriel Valley was hit hard in early December 2011 by devastating winds that knocked out power to nearly a quarter-of-a-million customers; some of them for more than a week.
