Legislature Recesses for Summer After Active Week
The Legislature has officially recessed for the summer this week, but not before moving on a key piece of environmental legislation.
On Monday, lawmakers gave a bi-partisan nod of approval to AB 398 (Garcia, D-Coachella), the extension of the state’s cap-and-trade program through the year 2030. The program aims to slash emissions by requiring entities to purchase permits to release greenhouse gases. The program’s renewal was a key priority for Governor Brown.
