On Monday, the California State Senate officially confirmed Wade Crowfoot as Secretary of the California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA) with a 38-0 vote.  Last month, Staci Heaton, RCRC Regulatory Affairs Advocate, testified in support of Secretary Crowfoot following RCRC’s official confirmation endorsement.  

In March, the RCRC Board of Directors adopted a new policy to offer a support position for Gubernatorial appointees during the California State Senate’s confirmation process.  As one of their official actions regarding this new policy, RCRC officially endorsed the confirmation of Wade Crowfoot as Secretary of CNRA. 

CNRA’s press release regarding the confirmation can be accessed here.  RCRC’s confirmation support letter can be accessed here.

RCRC expects that Thom Porter, Governor Newsom’s appointee to lead the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection will also receive the confirmation of the full Senate in the coming days.  RCRC is also in full support of the confirmation of Chief Porter.
