SUPERVISOR’S COMMITTEE REPORTS – Supervisor Holmes thanked the Board for approving his travel to Philadelphia to attend the funeral for Dr. Constantine Papadakis, President of Drexel University. Supervisor Montgomery thanked members of the District 5 Benefit Fund Committee for recommendations for distribution of revenue sharing funds to non-profits. Supervisor Uhler attended Cap to Cap reporting that relevant to Placer County is our Biomass Project. Supervisor Uhler said there is a Federal prohibition against any woody biomass material taken out of Federal Lands/National Forest Lands counting against renewable portfolio standards or against carbon limits on cap and trade, so as the Federal Government is moving forward to say we should engage in projects like biomass that utilize wood waste and other waste streams to create electricity and reduce fire load they say when a renewable portfolio standard is established all the efforts to remove the material, if it comes from Federal Land, does not count. He will try to get our delegation to have that exemption lifted to count under our obligation.
