The state's Employment Development Department has been struggling to process the tsunami of applications for unemployment benefits. From Californians who've lost their jobs. Now, more than 60 state lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have sent a letter to Governor Gavin Newsom calling for changes at the agency needs. Mary Franklin Harvin has the story. The letter follows last week's tense assembly oversight hearing where e. D D admitted to more than a 1,000,000 outstanding claims and that they have no clear plan to resolve most of them. Newsome has announced a strike team to look into issues at the agency. But some lawmakers are skeptical that it will actually help. So they've asked the governor to institute immediate payments to applicants and allow for retroactive certification for those benefits. As they wait to be paid. Many Californians also face a likely end to the states eviction moratorium within weeks, and even those who are getting payments have reduced pandemic assistance starting this month.

W's Matt Dillon reports the utility claims the California Energy Commission did not fulfill its legal obligation to promote natural gas. The story starts back in 2013 when lawmakers and then governor Jerry Brown proved the Natural Gas Act legislation required the Energy Commission to look for ways to highlight the benefits of natural gas as an energy source every four years. According to the Times. The first report issued by the commission was lengthy coming in at more than 100 pages. When it issued another one last year. It was a 22 page addendum to a different bit of energy policy. So Cal Gas, the nation's largest gas utility, takes issue with that, in its lawsuit claims the 22 page appendix does not tout the benefits of gas and actually highlights ways to minimize and phase out the fuel. The Energy Commission hasn't commented. The lawsuit comes at a time when communities across California and the country are exploring ways to wean off of fossil fuels Southern California gas.
