Sen. Mark Leno Supports our 1.5% LGBT Utilization Goal for CA Utilities



BuildOUT California is encouraged to have the support of Former State Senator and Assemblyman Mark Leno in our efforts to establish fair and equitable goals for LGBTQ businesses as part of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Utility Supplier Diversity Program.

“That is why I am urging the CPUC to establish a procurement utilization goal of at least 1.5 percent for LGBT business enterprises... It puts the LGBT community on a level footing with other groups in the CPUC Supplier Diversity Program… Most importantly, it goes back to the legislation's intent, which is to establish some equality for LGBT businesses that have been previously discriminated against.” - Former State Senator and Assemblyman Mark Leno
