On Nov. 3, members of the California legislature will hear from representatives of the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, the California Retailers Association, labor advocates and at least one major railroad company in an effort to identify solutions to the current supply chain challenges that have left a record number of ships stuck at anchor for days at a time.
Assemblyman Patrick O’Donnell, who represents parts of Long Beach, Catalina Island and the San Pedro Bay ports, called the joint hearing of the state Assembly and state Senate’s committees on ports and goods movement. O’Donnell serves as chair of the assembly committee.
