IMPERIAL — With the state of California running behind on its 10-year, $420-million plan to guide state investments at the Salton Sea and address negative public health and environmental impacts from the drying lake, 56th District Assemblyman Eduardo Garcia sponsored a bill to ensure the plan moves forward more quickly.

Assembly Bill 1657 would establish an Office of the Salton Sea within the California Natural Resources Agency that would be staffed with personnel with expertise in project management, engineering, scientific and legal issues, and community engagement.
