The Vote Heard 'Round the World

California is poised to pass historic climate legislation within the next three weeks.

  • The State Senate already passed bills ordering strong mandates for clean energy targets and GHG reductions by 2030 and 2050.
  • The governor wants to sign these bills.
  • First they must get through the Assembly.


Lobbyists

About the Bills

Senate Bill 32 (SB 32) is a statutory commitment for California to reduce GHG emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.

SB 350 as proposed sets targets for 2030 that cut greenhouse gas emissions:

  • 50% reduction in petroleum use in cars and trucks - This is the big fight. Oil companies are running radio ads and sending fliers to residents in swing districts. Legislators need to hear from their constituents that they support strong climate bills.
  • 50% of energy supply from renewables
  • Double the energy efficiency of existing buildings


This bill passed! SB 185
requires California's public employees' and teachers' pension funds to divest from coal, which harms pensions as much as it harms lungs - CalPERS/STRS lost $840 million on coal investments last year. What's more, scientists have now proven that pollution from coal burned in Asia blows back over the ocean and pollutes the air in California. It is time to halt investments in this dirty commodity.

The vote is soon. Send your letter today.
