Senator Stern on Historic Cap-and-Trade Vote

July 17, 2017

SACRAMENTO – State Senator Henry Stern released the following statement after the California Legislature passed a package of bills to extend the state’s historic Cap-and-Trade program to 2030.

“Today's vote is a win for taxpayers, small business owners, innovators, and everyone who breathes in California (everyone).  What our bipartisan vote today shows is that some matters rise above party.  Tackling climate change in a way that sustains California's global economic competitiveness is much bigger than any party or person.  I'm proud to be a member of the California Legislature today.”
