Cutting Waste Starting With The Board

khts_budgetThe new budget has the Waste Management board and others in its sights.

Although compromises are being made by both democrats and republicans, Senator Tony Strickland may have won a battle with the recent budget approval by the Senate.

 

Within the budget proposal, which has passed through the senate, sits Senate Bill 63 which seeks to stop government waste by eliminating the Integrated Waste Management Board, and nine other boards and commissions.

“The Waste Management Board makes $130,000 a year for one or two days of work a month,” according to Christina Englander, spokesperson for Senator Strickland.

The elimination of this board has been a project of Senator Strickland’s, and its days may be numbered.

Although the budget is still waiting for Assembly approval, this bill has been passed by both the Senate and the Assembly.

The Waste Management Board was assembled after the passage of the Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989. The act mandated that California’s 450 jurisdictions implement waste management programs starting with a 25 percent diversion rate of recycled waste by 1995, and a 50 percent diversion rate by 2000.

The board provides grants and loans to help cities, counties, businesses, and organizations meet the state’s waste reduction, reuse, and recycling goals.

Another board that is on the chopping block is the Bureau of Naturopathic Medicine.

Naturopathic medicine is based on diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes, as well as relying on natural therapies to enhance a person’s ability to ward off and combat disease.

The Bureau of Naturopathic Medicine is responsible for issuing naturopathic licenses, coordinating legislative, regulatory, and budgetary activities, as well as managing disciplinary action.
