Statement from Rick Zbur, Chair and President, and Sarah Rose, CEO, CLCV:

We are proud of California’s continued leadership to address climate change impacts while improving our health, and investing in our economy and our communities. CLCV has consistently supported policies designed to achieve these important goals.

Any legislation governing the investment of AB 32 cap and trade auction proceeds should:

Be consistent with the investment plan and process established by the California Air Resources Board and other state agencies;
Ensure that funding priorities achieve maximum greenhouse gas reduction benefits;
Commit to investments in communities consistent with the goals of SB 535, AB 1532, and SB 375; and
Provide for a transparent, public review and comment process
CLCV will review and consider support for such legislation that meets these provisions.

California Environmental Voters (formerly the California League of Conservation Voters) believes the climate crisis is here and this moment requires transformative change. California has the policy solutions to stop climate change but lacks the political will to do it at the rate and scale that’s necessary. EnviroVoters exists to build the political power to solve the climate crisis, advance justice, and create a roadmap for global action. We organize voters, elect and train candidates, and hold lawmakers accountable for bold policy change. We won’t stop until we have resilient, healthy, thriving communities, and a democracy and economy that is just and sustainable for all. Join us at and on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
