Join environmental, environmental justice, and social justice leaders for a press conference THIS MONDAY at 11am PDT on the North steps of the California State Capitol to say NO to the deeply flawed cap & trade bill - AB 398.
Assembly Bill 398 -- a bill to extend CA's cap and trade system from 2020 to 2030 -- is stuffed with giveaways to Big Oil and other corporate polluters in order to court Republican support. But sources inside the Capitol report that the bill is vulnerable. We can kill this bill if enough progressive Democrats vote no, despite intense political pressure to support it.
California can have a stronger carbon reduction strategy that shows the rest of the world what real climate leadership looks like, without forsaking California’s most vulnerable communities. But our political leaders will need to demonstrate the courage to stand up to AB398 and what it represents -- corporate profit first, people second.
JOIN US this Monday and let your voice be heard!
California State Capitol, 1315 10th Street, Sacramento, California 95814
