State Controller Yee calls for 1.5% LGBT goal at CPUC



Statewide, elected officials are vocalizing their support to establish a 1.5% procurement goal for the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to recruit and utilize LGBT firms.

"For decades, the LGBTQ community has faced discrimination. A 1.5 percent goal would more effectively reward and encourage the Utilities to work with the LGBTQ community, establish some equality, and avoid ongoing unintended discrimination." – California State Controller Betty Yee
