Fighting Climate Change and Air Pollution

Monday, July 17, 2017

(Sacramento) - Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens), Chair of the Assembly Natural Resources Committee, authored Assembly Bill 617 to balance the global focus and flexibility of California’s cap and trade program with real measures that will improve air quality in our communities. Assemblywoman Garcia told her fellow lawmakers as she presented AB 617 to the full Assembly, “Today, we are integrating the fight against air pollution with the fight against climate change.  We are establishing real targets, deadlines and enforcement to address air pollution in the most burdened communities. This is a significant down-payment towards ensuring all Californians get their piece of environmental justice.” Learn more in this Assembly Access video.
