Ask Key Assemblymembers to Support Climate Bills

Why sign this petition?

Two critical bills in the California State legislature have the potential to solidify California’s leadership position on climate action and clean energy and to significantly advance associated economic and jobs growth as well as health improvements.

Senate Bill 32 (SB 32) commits California to reduce GHG emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. Senate Bill 350 (SB 350) sets targets for 2030 that achieve 50% reduction in petroleum use in cars and trucks, 50% of utility power from renewable energy, and double the energy efficiency of existing buildings.

Sign to urge your Assembly Member to vote Yes on SB 32 and SB 350. And call if you can!

The petition

Dear Assembly Member,

I am writing to urge you to vote Yes on SB 32 and SB 350. As a member of the Committee on Appropriations, you will represent all Californians when these important climate bills come up for a vote this week.

The California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32) passed in 2006 proved to be a game changer in moving California to the forefront of clean energy and clean transportation development, creating a strong foundation for the jobs of the future. With SB 32 and SB 350, California is poised to maintain that leadership position, reaping the economic and health benefits that will accrue to those who embrace practical and forward thinking solutions to the climate crisis.

By supporting SB 32 and SB 350, we can reduce air pollution, improve health, grow California’s prominence in the innovative technology sector and create jobs in the clean energy and transportation sectors, and reduce the significant economic risks and costs associated with extreme heat, wildfires, drought, infectious diseases, and rising oceans -- especially in the disadvantaged communities hardest hit by climate impacts.

I’m counting on you to reinforce and advance our state’s leadership in taking action on the most pressing issue of our time, climate change.
