SACRAMENTO – State Senator Joe Simitian (D-Palo Alto) announced today that this month’s guest on his monthly television show Capitol Focus is Tim Eichenberg, Director of the Pacific Regional Office for The Ocean Conservancy, a leading environmental organization dedicated to protecting oceans. 
“I’m delighted to have Tim Eichenberg as a guest,” said Simitian.  “The Ocean Conservancy has been instrumental in helping us to pass several laws to stop the shipping industry from dumping harmful substances into California’s water and air.” 
Simitian’s 30-minute monthly cable show discusses current issues brewing in the Capitol and how they affect people in Senate Distirct 11.  Each show covers a range of topics of interest to the community and features a significant special guest.
In addition to speaking with Eichenberg about how the growing fish farming industry is affecting the environment, Simitian discusses the special election, California’s initiative process, and his annual “There Oughta Be a Law Contest.”
“Capitol Focus provides a wonderful opportunity to let my constituents know about what’s going on in the Capitol, in the District, as well as the good work being done by many of my colleagues.”
