Insurance commissioner’s Funding Recommendation
2012-2013-Potential Spending Authority
San Joaquin County Vector has their own lab and they do their own testing for WNV positive. They are the ones who report a high threshold meeting state of emergency levels for additional funding.
It’s very hard to find all of the funding Arnold gave generously to the vector agency never concerning him self to see how honest the men who run the agency were.
Management controls and manipulates all the resources to ensure the funds continue to roll in. Millions were allocated every year.
The West Nile state of emergency funding would be rolled up in a package and allocated for multiple agencies in the county.
The problem I ran into is the agency that governed enforcement of the vector like OSHA…ect If you were benefiting financially from an entity that you were supposed to govern and fine would you stop the gravy train?
“How does an agency govern another agency when they receive funds for by agency they were designed to enforce policy compliance over them?
(NPDES) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System is a law which requires a permit to report all chemicals vector control is allowed to use. NPDES requires vector to return to sites to test water and soil and report for toxicity and residue where applications were made.
According to the Sixth Circuit Court Ruling on National Cotton Council of America v. U.S. EPA (553 F.3d 927 (6th Cir., 2009)), the application of pesticides at, near, or over waters of the United States that results in discharges of pollutants requires coverage under a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. In response to the Sixth Circuit Court’s decisions and previous decisions by other courts on pesticide regulation, the State Water Board has adopted four Pesticide Permits.
The Joint Vector Power formed a coalition to lobby against NPDES compliance required to discharges in the waters of the US. They fought to keep their exempt status and was defeated. Their coalition is strongly funded with our money and if they could change their reporting of toxic affects they would.
The 2009-10 fiscal year, as reported to the California State Controller by 4,792 special districts in California.
Vector pools funds together with many county agency’s to create special districts with super sized funding. Our employees union was forced out by our manager. During negotiations they use multiple law firms against the 15 pesticide applicators who do hazardous job duties.
They keep on retainer multiple high end law firms, Risk Management that has participated in retribution to me after filing a Whistle Blower Hotline and filing a written Sexual Harassment complaint to the RISK Management Rep. They are self insured and work comp injuries are denied by themselves.
I have witnessed them deny employee injuries that were complete negligent and they were fully responsible for. They deny medical and benefits ti the injured worker. They do not report to OSHA. They commit fraud by denying valid injury claims. The state requires they provide insurance for injured employees, but the money is abused by the adjuster of claims, the firm Stockwell Harris and the (QME’s) Qualified Medical Examiner. They deny claims to diminish the reality of the real hazards and job injuries. This gives them a higher score for self insurance and lower rates, The money they save is invested in mutual funds.
