Donald Trump has made a series of racist, sexist and bigoted statements as well as disparaged the professional men and women of our intelligence agencies, many of whom risked their lives in service of our nation. This behavior is not befitting the office of the President of the United States and does not keep with the idea that our president should seek to be
a leader for all Americans.
Two Democratic Assemblymembers got the ball rolling on settling the future of California’s cap-and-trade program by introducing A.B. 151 yesterday. The bill would authorize the California Air Resources Board “to utilize a market-based compliance mechanism” to reduce greenhouse gases after 2020, when the current Global Warming Solutions Act expires.
Today, Assemblymembers Autumn R. Burke, Jim Cooper, Evan Low, and Blanca Rubio have introduced legislation to extend California’s cap-and-trade program beyond 2020. Assembly Bill 151 affirms the State’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emission at least 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 in the most technologically feasible and cost effective way by using a market based mechanism: cap-and-trade.
