Back in 2015, Public Utilities Commission President Michael Picker said California’s grid could handle 100% renewables.And according to the California Energy Commission the state is ahead of schedule in meeting its RPS targets.With the development of the framework, that is expected to change.“There was no real carrot for following the law, and there was no stick if you didn’t follow the law,” Romesburg said.“So we started focusing on the framework of the revision as a way of putting meat on the bones of the FAIR Education Act.”An advisory commission of 20 scholars associated with the American Historical Association provided recommendations to the state Department of Education on the framework.And if the latest bill goes through, it would put California's energy mix on par with Hawaii.Though the 100% renewables goal is not mandatory, the bill would accelerate the current mandates to hit that goal by 2045.California is already on the forefront of renewable energy with a 50% RPS.Aside from Hawaii’s 100%-by-2045 standard, it is one of the most aggressive targets in the nation.

s Title 24 Energy Standards for buildings mandates all new residential homes and commercial buildings under 10 stories to have a “solar ready” roof.
This means 15% of the roof’s area is free of shade, obstructions from sunlight, and ready for a future solar system installation.
California’s K-12 students will be learning more about the contributions of the LGBT community in the public-school curriculum as early as this fall.
The California Board of Education recently voted in favor of a new History-Social Science Framework that builds on the Fair, Accurate, Inclusive and Respectful (FAIR) Education of 2012, which requires a more comprehensive representation of the LGBT community in school curricula.“The scholars, LGBT advocates, educators, and students who were pushing for these changes wanted to make sure that there weren’t just token mentions of Harvey Milk and Stonewall in 11th grade,” said Don Romesburg, an associate professor and chair of the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Sonoma State University.
