Support AB-398 and AB-617

The California legislature and Governor Brown put the final touches on two bills that will help California continue to lead on climate action.

What you need to know

If approved, AB-398 will extend the cap-and-trade emissions reduction program until 2030. An accompanying bill, AB-617, will reduce air contaminants in California’s most polluted communities.

The two policies are absolutely essential for California to meet its ambitious goal of reducing greenhouse emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030. Auctions from the cap-and-trade program will also provide billions of dollars for projects that will aid in the transition to a clean energy economy. The cap-and-trade funds may also be used to protect Californians from the damaging effects of climate change.

What we all need to do

Today — we are asking you to ACT IMMEDIATELY — and call BOTH your assembly member and your local senator to support AB-398 and AB-617.

In the face of the Trump administration’s actions to roll back climate progress, California must move forward. There is no choice — California must succeed!

Please act now.

STEP ONE. Find your legislator here.

STEP TWO. Call the district office. Tell the receptionist that you’re a constituent — and that you support AB-398 and AB-617 — the cap-and-trade bills — and expect your legislator to do the same.
