On Wednesday, RCRC staff convened a meeting with Abigail Ellis, Field Representative for U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein.  RCRC Member Supervisors from Siskiyou, Modoc, Glenn, Colusa, Tehama, Sierra and Butte counties attended the town-hall style meeting, which included candid discussions on issues of importance to California’s rural counties.  

Held in Glenn County, RCRC Vice President Governmental Affairs Paul A. Smith kicked-off the meeting by introducing Ms. Ellis, and thanking her for providing RCRC with a forum to dive into deeper detail on issues such as the Federal Payments In Lieu of Taxes (PILT) and the Secure Rural Schools (SRS) programs, forestry and wildfire funding, infrastructure and water.
