CCGO/CORE), and Peter Hartnett (Sr. Staff in Mr. Ruskin's office). CCGO is the California Council of Geoscience Organizations. CORE-CCGO presented an environmental award to Mr. Ruskin, Peter Hartnett and Erin Shaw for their work for the passage of AB1188 in 2009, which increase fees to financially stabilize the California Underground Storage Tank Cleanup Fund.
