Arnold Schwarzenegger, state Assembly Speaker Karen Bass and other political and business leaders on Friday hailed California’s historic bid for $4.7 billion for a high-speed-train network.

GLENDALE ? A plan to train at least 20 people for ?green? industry jobs through Glendale Community College could get a $100,000 shot in the arm after regional workforce officials Thursday recommended that more money be diverted to the program. While the allotment must still get the seal of approval from the full Verdugo Workforce Investment Board, its executive committee voted Thursday to reallocate the $100,000 to a joint training project between the college and Glendale Water & Power, which is expected to be a big draw for graduates from the program.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger released a list Tuesday of 244 proposed projects for generating renewable energy in California, a set of options to help wean the nation?s most populous state off of carbon-based power sources.

NORTHRIDGE — Democratic Assemblyman Paul Krekorian fired back Wednesday at Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and other critics of his legislation that would force utilities to produce a third of their energy from in-state renewable sources by 2020. Krekorian argued that the details of his bill, along with a package of other related bills, have been clouded with misinformation and would address the concerns of the governor and apprehensive power companies. Utilities, including Glendale Water & Power and Burbank Water and Power, have worried that the bill would not allow them to count power used from green plants in other states toward the quotas, instead requiring them to invest in developing plants within California.

GLENDALE — Local utility managers voiced support Tuesday for a bill that would force them to produce a third of their energy from renewable sources by 2020. The proposed law would help speed the development of power plants and transmission lines in California that could cut down on greenhouse-gas emissions, the managers said. While many of the state’s 46 utilities are not on track to meet the proposed mandate, Burbank Water and Power and Glendale Water & Power are both expected to meet the 33% goal by 2020 because they have joined with other utilities to build green energy plants in other states and transmit that power back to the Los Angeles area, managers said.

The Glendale City Council’s man on transportation and street issues Tuesday took up the challenge issued by Mayor John Drayman for ways to deal with the continuing problem of traffic and pedestrians in the Jewel City. Drayman had pointed out to his colleagues that Glendale finished next to last in a survey conducted by All State Insurance in traffic safety, a showing the mayor characterized Tuesday as “abysmal.” Councilman Ara Najarian, the regional representative on the MTA board, responded to the challenge with a six-point plan dealing with the issue, including an aggressive effort to secure safe route to schools grants at the state and local level.
