Wieckowski receives honors

Submitted By Jeff Barbosa

The California Association of Environmental Health Administrators selected Assemblymember Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont) as the Legislator of the Year in recognition of his work on local environmental programs.

Wieckowski, the former chairman of the Assembly's Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials Committee, has authored more than half a dozen bills on issues such as paint recycling collection programs, underground and above ground storage tank clean-up efforts and comprehensive regulatory reform of hazardous materials.

Four of his environmental bills were signed by Governor Jerry Brown last year and the Governor has already signed another Wieckowski hazardous materials bill this year. Two other Wieckowski environmental bills are currently before the Governor.

Wieckowski received the award for his "authorship, and support of legislation that has improved the Unified program and local environmental health services by making them more effective and efficient."

The Unified program coordinates six environmental and emergency response programs throughout the state.
