Agenda for meeting is available here:


The agencies involved will use this information to improve their understanding of California's natural gas context and refine their work agendas for the coming year. The entities and individuals who attend are encouraged to ask questions, offer recommendations, and express their concerns on natural gas issues. Since this is an informal event, it should not be considered to be in lieu of, or a part of, any regulatory or policy proceeding.


The State of California formed the Interagency Natural Gas Working Group (Working Group). The Energy Commission chairs this group of state agencies involved in all aspects of natural gas in California. The Energy Commission, on behalf of the Working Group, filed a proposal in June 2005 with the California Public Utilities Commission to start holding biannual meetings with all parties interested in natural gas in California. The agencies will be prepared at this meeting to provide briefings on a variety of topics currently of interest to California. However, the agencies, at this meeting will be interested in gathering information on concerns and suggestions from all participants.
