Help Me Expand California’s Fight Against Climate Change
As the State Legislature concludes its business in the Capitol this month, I need your help to pass an important bill expanding our fight against climate change. Please sign the petition and send a message for lawmakers to act now.
California has ambitious goals to reduce climate change contributing greenhouse gas emissions. With 40 percent of these emissions coming from transportation, further progress for our planet requires a shift in what we drive. My Assembly Bill (AB) 1184 establishes the California Electric Vehicle Initiative — a new rebate program applied at car dealerships to make zero-emission electric vehicles (EVs) more affordable. This program will get 5 million EVs on the road by 2030.
With over 20 EV models now available and more in the works, there has never been a better time to electrify our cars. I recently purchased an EV and love it!
AB 1184 is modeled after the California Solar Initiative, which helped our state lead the rooftop solar revolution. It’s time for California to take the next step. A coalition of clean energy, environmental, and social justice organizations are rallying behind my bill to electrify our transportation. Please join us.
