CALIFORNIA - State officials are showing new concern over PG&E’s commitment to wildfire prevention.

The president of the California Public Utilities Commission said he is skeptical about PG&E’s promises to instill a culture of safety in the company.

Consultants hired by the California Public Utilities Commission said in March that PG&E lacks an overall safety strategy.

10 of PG&E’s 13 board members were replaced last month. The company also hired a new CEO.
