On April 19, 2004, CMTA participated with various organizations including the California Environmental Protection Agency (CAL-EPA), the California Intergrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) in a workshop to develop education principles and concepts.

Last session, then-Governor Davis signed into law AB 1548 (Pavley - Agoura Hills), a bill that would recommends an implementation of a unified K-12 education strategy on the environment, such as energy conservation, air resources, toxic materials, wildlife conservation and forestry.

CMTA provided feedback and expressed concern that private industry should be included in the AB 1548 discussions, as any newly adopted curriculum needs to be based on sound science. CMTA also stressed the need for curriculums to include a balance between industry, technology and environmental concerns.

No firm date has been set for the next meeting, however June 3 and July 19 have been mentioned as potential dates. CMTA will continue to monitor this issue and report on it.
