AB 1745 - Clean Cars 2040 Act
Assembly Bill 1745, the proposed Clean Car Act for California would ban the sale of gasoline-powered vehicles in California by 2040. The act would leverage market forces to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. Transportation is the largest source of California’s greenhouse gas pollution, and therefore represents the largest opportunity for smart climate policy. Click here for more information

The Committee is likely to vote on AB 1745 on April 16th, and therefore the critical window for representatives to hear from us is starting now, and especially between April 4th and April 11th.

AB 1775: State lands: leasing: oil and gas
Sign the petition in support of AB 1775 to maintain California’s longstanding policy to keep new offshore drilling operations out of our waters and protect the environment, our coast, and our economy.
