Baja California lawmakers recently held a meeting with California legislators in order to discuss several items, including the environment.
Assemblywoman Daylin Garcia said lawmakers with the Commission of Economic Development and Border Affairs held the meeting in the California Capitol in Sacramento.
Topics discussed included pollution in irrigation canals, southern Mexicali lagoon system, the New River and environmental justice.
Nonprofit association Comité Cívico de Mexicali introduced a document that seeks to promote cleaning the region’s water and air on both sides of the border. Lawmakers decided to create an inter-institutional committee to introduce legislation to use funds to address environmental issues, Garcia said.
