Two pieces of legislation that affect the Wildlife Conservation Board were introduced in the 2015/2016 legislative session and subsequently signed into law by Governor Brown.

  • Senate Bill 1089 (Pavley) (PDF) expands the number of voting members on the WCB from three members to seven. Of the four additional members, two are to be appointed by the legislature and two are to be appointed by the Governor. Subject expertise is requisite of all appointees.

The legislation mandates that a 12 member advisory committee comprised of representatives from local and state government be established and convene twice a year.
