Series 2 Hearing Files 1980-2006

Physical Description: 266 file folders, 45 audio tapes, 12 CDs, and 29 VHS tapes

Arrangement

Arranged chronologically by date of hearing, with the exception of the files regarding the Oversight Hearing of the Willco Dump, which have been placed at the end of the series due their volume. A complete listing of these folders can be found in Appendix A in master finding aid at California State Archives.

Access Information

Access to audiovisual materials requires the production of use copies.

Scope and Content Note

Hearing files may contain agendas, audiotapes, transcripts, testimony, background, and working files for regular session hearings as well as interim hearings and select joint hearings. Tapes have been separated to a cold-storage vault for preservation purposes and separation sheets are with the hearing files to alert the researcher to the existence of such tapes. In this series, hearing files have been roughly divided into two types, either informational hearings that analyze specific topics related to toxics legislation, or bill hearings that cover a range of assembly bills heard on a specific day.
As mentioned, of particular interest are those files pertaining to the Oversight Hearing of the Willco Dump, which investigated the California Department of Transportation's involvement in toxic materials removal from the Willco Dump site near Lynwood, CA. The oversight hearing on the Willco Dump took place in Los Angeles County in the district of Assemblywoman Maxine Waters, and investigated claims that while constructing the Century Freeway (Interstate 5) through a former refuse site known as Willco, the California Department of Transportation may have deliberately understated quantities of toxic materials they found and had removed through questionable contractual agreements.
Researchers may also be interested in files relating to the Governor's Reorganization Plan Number One of 1985, the Governor's Reorganization Plan Number Two of 1986, and files relating to the administration of the State Superfund program.
For a complete listing of hearings see Appendix A on the California State Archives website.
