North Vancouver, B.C., Canada (PRWEB) April 08, 2014
Specialty Technical Publishers, premier North American publisher of audit, compliance and risk solutions, today announced the publication of its annual California Environmental Legislation review for 2013.
The complimentary 17-page report highlights the legislation enacted in 2013 in the eight top areas of interest for environmental compliance professionals:
- Climate change and greenhouse gases
- Air quality
- Water quality and supply
- Hazardous waste and hazardous materials
- Underground storage tanks
- Solid Waste
- Natural resources
This informative report includes insights on the significant environmental legislation enacted in 2013. It then goes on to discuss the potential impact of the new regulation and what to expect in the upcoming 2014 legislative year.
“2013 was a watershed year for environmental legislation in California, which leads the way in environmental compliance and awareness. For example, the impact of SB 4—the Comprehensive Regulation of Hydraulic Fracturing—will be felt well into 2014 and beyond. It will provide direction for other states that have yet to create legislation to address the unease between the exploitation of natural resources and the need to protect water quality. I highly recommend this retrospective look at what has been achieved in California in 2013.”
