As President Trump surrenders America's climate leadership to China and the EU, Governor Brown has been stepping up—but we need your help to make sure the California State Legislature follows his lead.
Over a decade ago, California passed landmark climate legislation. In 2013, the state launched a groundbreaking cap-and-trade program that sets an absolute statewide limit on carbon pollution and holds all major polluters accountable. Today, California is working to address local air pollution and beating its emissions targets while the economy is booming.
Now, California needs to extend this crucial program beyond the original 2020 goal—and a 2/3 vote in the State Legislature will give it the greatest legal certainty. Take action today, and make sure your elected officials stand on the right side.
Please extend California's cap-and-trade program as soon as possible
Dear [Decision Maker],
