SACRAMENTO – In an effort to promote transparency, California State Treasurer John Chiang today is inaugurating a brand new service offering live, interactive, call-in access to board meetings of the principal boards, commissions and authorities of the State Treasurer’s Office.

Californians interested in decisions about financing of alternative energy and advanced transportation programs, health and education facilities, pollution control, affordable housing and the like are invited to call in to the conference number listed below.

“I’ve long been passionate about the importance of open and inclusive government,” Chiang said. “So it gives me great pleasure to make these important, decision-making meetings available, live, to all who wish to listen and participate in them.“

The service will be offered beginning with today’s meetings of the Pooled Money Investment Board at 10 a.m., the California Debt Limit Allocation Committee at 11 a.m. and the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee after the completion of the CDLAC meeting.
