Assembly Democrats Answer the Call to Extend Cap-and-Trade

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.
