California is one procedural hurdle away from adopting one of the strictest laws in the country regarding police use of force. After clearing the state senate 34-3 on Monday, Assembly Bill 392 heads to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk.

This week, Durig Capital takes a look at a unique oil and gas producer. California Resources Corporation (CRC) produces oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL) strictly within the state of California.
