California Public Utilities Commission will meet at UC Davis

The California Public Utilities Commission will hold its March 2 voting meeting at UC Davis, beginning at 9:30 a.m. in King Hall’s Appellate Courtroom, 400 Mrak Hall Drive.

The voting meeting begins with public comment, and members of the public are welcome.

“We have scheduled a number of voting meetings around the state this year in order to get into the communities we serve,” said CPUC President Michael Picker. “Holding this meeting at UC Davis is of particular interest to me because it allows us to build a direct pipeline to students and let them know about the varied and important work that the CPUC does, how they can get involved, and how they can join our team when they graduate.”

Commissioners will discuss and vote on proposed policies, and staff will make a brief presentation on the implementation of an all-services area code overlay approved by the CPUC to resolve the shortage of numbers in the 916 area code region.

Those intending to make public comment can sign up to speak in person before the meeting starts, or can sign up online in advance at The CPUC’s rules for public comment, the voting meeting agenda, a list of items that will be held over to a different meeting, presentations, remote access and other information will be available on that web page.

The CPUC typically holds voting meetings twice a month at its headquarters in San Francisco, and also schedules them in other cities throughout the state. In addition, the CPUC holds many public-participation hearings and other events statewide in order to reach out to consumers.
