As excerpted from The Desert Review:

EL CENTRO – The California Legislature passed on August 30, AB 1945, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006: Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF). The bill is now awaiting Governor Brown’s signature.

The bill, introduced by Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia, seeks to improve access to programs funded by GGRF, by expanding the list of co-benefits and allowing the counties of Imperial and San Diego to include daytime population numbers in their GGRF grant applications, according to a recently released news release by the assemblymember's office.

“The success of AB 1945 will break down barriers and better position Imperial County to receive their fair share of climate investments," the author of the bill, Garcia, said. "Increasing the accessibility of these resources will empower our region with the means to combat the unique air quality challenges that have jeopardized the public health and wellbeing of our community.”
