Cutting The Green Tape

Helping environmentally beneficial work happen more quickly, simply, and cost-effectively

California has established itself as a global leader implementing solutions to many of the most intractable environmental and social problems that exist. With this spirit of innovation and solutions-oriented leadership, Secretary Crowfoot and other state agency leaders have launched the Cutting Green Tape initiative.

Cutting Green Tape convenes regulatory agency staff, local governments, environmental conservation groups, and a range of other stakeholders and experts from across the state to improve permitting and funding efficiencies for ecological restoration and stewardship projects.

Secretary Crowfoot and other leaders in the Newsom Administration are partnering with the California Landscape Stewardship Network to convene roundtables starting in December 2019 through April 2020.  Outcomes will include specific recommendations to improve on existing programs and program delivery in 2020 and beyond.
