Here is more information on Governor Brown’s removal of Elena Miller as the head of California’s Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR). Derek Chernow, the head of California’s Department of Conservation was also removed. In addition to supervising DOGGR, Chernow supervised California’s State Mining and Geology Board and the Office of Mine Reclamation. As discussed in my presentation to the Industrial Minerals Association in September, the article makes clear that, at least for the time being, it’s very much about jobs right now in California.
