California State Lands Commission

The California State Lands Commission is a unit of state government that is responsible for management and protection of natural and cultural resources, as well as public access rights, on some of California's publicly owned lands.[1]

The members of the State Lands Commission include the Lieutenant Governor, the State Controller and the State Director of Finance.[1] The first two are statewide elected officials while the last is a cabinet-level officer appointed by the Governor.

The Commission has a staff of more than 200 people, supervised by an Executive Officer appointed by the Commissioners. Staff members include specialists in mineral resources, land management, boundary determination, petroleum engineering and natural sciences.[1]
