Newsom has been standing up for the interests of ratepayers, victims and communities from day one, so his continued support is no surprise. We need to achieve systemic change in the structure and governance of PG&E to ensure safe, reliable power. The stakes for California are too high to leave it to PG&E executives and their narrow self interests."

"Of course PG&E is going to claim its plan is great and complies with the law, but only a sucker would believe them at this point," Sen. Dodd said. "It's their standard operating procedure to say one thing and do another. As coauthor of Assembly Bill 1054, I can tell you we intended and must demand a better outcome for our ratepayers and communities."

Senator Bill Dodd represents California’s 3rd Senate District, which includes all or portions of Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Yolo, Sacramento, and Contra Costa counties. You can learn more about Senator Dodd at
