About the Speaker:
O’Conner will share his expertise and insight with us on the current California water landscape, both legislatively and more generally in this presentation.  He has been with the State Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee since January 2003.  Before coming to the Committee, he spent 10 years at the California Research Bureau (CRB), a nonpartisan policy research branch of the California State Library, serving for six of those years as the Assistant Director for the Environment and Natural Resources.  O'Connor is the author of a number of CRB reports, including reports on the governance of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and the financing of the State Water Project.
