Schwarzenegger Drops Plan To Eliminate CIWMB

Sacramento — California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has withdrawn his proposal to eliminate 88 state boards and commissions, including the California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB). Under the proposal, the California Environmental Protection Agency would have assumed CIWMB’s responsibilities.

Schwarzenegger informed the state’s Little Hoover Commission, which was studying the proposal before making a non-binding recommendation on whether or not the Legislature should pass it, of his decision in a Feb. 17 letter. "I have concluded that this proposal will benefit from further review," he wrote.
