Clean, Green Prosperous Future on California Horizon
(SAN FRANCISCO, CA)— Today, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. lent his signature to Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia’s (D- Coachella) AB 398, the next critical benchmark in California’s global climate leadership. This groundbreaking legislation established a comprehensive statewide program that will keep us on track to meet our ambitious 2030 climate goals.
“California has come together to act on climate, united across party lines with one clear vision for the future. I applaud the great vision of Governor Brown, Senate President pro Tempore Kevin De León and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon. Together, through an unprecedented collaborative, bipartisan effort AB 398 will establish a comprehensive mechanism to allow us to achieve our ambitious climate goals, retain industry jobs to sustain our ever growing, clean green economy, all while addressing vital public health and air quality issues,” professed Assemblymember Garcia, Chairman of the Joint Legislative Committee on Climate Change Policies. “As we work to reach our 2030 emission reduction goals, over time this system would reduce tax burden and prove significantly less costly to Californian households.”
