PG&E claim deadline set

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California, which is overseeing PG&E’s Chapter 11 case, has set a bar date, or deadline, for proof-of-claim forms from wildfire victims and other entities seeking financial compensation from PG&E prior to the company’s bankruptcy filing date of Jan. 29. They must be received by 5 p.m. on Oct. 21.

Claims can be submitted online, by mail or in person starting Monday (July 15). Go to for more information.

Residents in the region also may receive relief with the passage of Assembly Bill 1054, which was approved by the Senate and heads to the Assembly this week. It would institute safety performance regulations for utilities and aims to protect ratepayers from bill increases.
