SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Roughly 30 California business leaders are joining California Gov. Jerry Brown in China to support his policies and net their own investments. A delegation led by the Bay Area Council includes executives at transportation and energy companies, public utility leaders, investors and a top executive of the San Francisco International Airport, among others. Most paid a roughly $5,500 fee for four days of events, including multiple private dinners and receptions with Brown, a clean energy ministerial and meetings with Chinese business and political leaders. Brown’s travel, meanwhile, is covered by the non-profit California State Protocol Foundation, which solicits private donations with the goal of eliminating taxpayer costs. Donations to the foundation solicited by Brown must be regularly disclosed, and unions and private businesses have covered Brown’s expenses in the past.
