AB-1745 Vehicles: Clean Cars 2040 Act
This bill would ban the sale of gasoline-powered vehicles in California by 2040. Currently, are over 360,000 electric vehicles on California roads, and Governor Brown wants to boost that number to 1.5 million by 2025. Many automakers are already following suit, with Volvo set to produce solely electric and electric-hybrid cards by 2019, and Ford offering 16 fully electric models by 2022

SB 834 and AB 1775: State lands: leasing: oil and gas
In response to the current administration's plans to allow more offshore oil drilling, these companion bills would prohibit further offshore oil drilling within California's three-mile underwater costal zone. They would also ban any pipelines or other means of conveying oil through this costal zone onto the shore of California.

AB1884 Food facilities: single-use plastic straws 
This bill, introduced last month, would require that servers do not automatically serve plastic straws in restaurants. 

An estimated 500 million plastic straws are used every day in the United States, most just used once and discarded. Calderon said plastic straws and stirrers were the sixth most common items collected during California Coastal Cleanup Days between 1989 and 2014.
