Program also includes  the role of science, California energy objectives, economic outcomes, and development realities in informing its recommendations and conclusions; the current status of the DRECP study and the issues that are most likely to be contentious during public review of the draft plan; and  how the adoption of the DRECP can streamline project permitting, and increase the certainty that specific projects in the study area will be able to satisfy environmental standard.
