Warren-Alquist Act Legislative History Documents

cover of report

IMPORTANT NOTE: These files contain scans of public documents from California Energy Commission staff files related to the legislative histories of the original Warren-Alquist Act bill, SB 1575 in 1974, as well as two subsequent bills that amended the Warren-Alquist Act: SB 928 in 1988 and AB 446 in 1994. Documents relating to these three bills are being made available because of their potential relevance to the legislative intent questions that are being briefed in the Ridgecrest Power Project proceeding. In providing these documents, staff makes no guarantee that they are the entire legislative histories for the three bills; in fact, additional documents relating to the three bills (as well as other legislation amending the Warren-Alquist Act) are known to exist at the California State Archives and possibly at other libraries or locations. For information about legislative files at the State Archives, see http://www.sos.ca.gov/archives/ or call 916-653-7715.

Additional Note: Some of these archival scanned files are very large and may not open properly in a web browser. An alternative is to right-click your mouse on the link (option-mouse-click on a Macintosh) to save the file to your desktop or other folder. You can then open the file outside of your web browser.
