Do Not Reverse California's Clean Air Act
Two Texas oil companies are spending millions to push Prop. 23, a deceptive ballot proposition that would kill California clean energy and air pollution control standards. Four years ago, with support from businesses, labor, environmental and health organizations, California passed a clean air law AB 32 that holds polluters accountable and requires them to reduce air pollution that threatens human health and contributes to global climate change. This law, building on decades of state clean energy policies, has launched our state to the forefront of the clean technology industry sparking innovation and clean energy businesses that are creating hundreds of thousands of new California jobs. But the oil companies' Prop. 23 would allow polluters to avoid our state's clean energy standards, kill competition and jobs from California's clean technology companies, and keep us addicted to dirty fossil fuels.
