Speaker Rendon Statement on Passage of AB 197

SACRAMENTO—Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) released the following statement after the passage of AB 197:

“In passing SB 32, we drew up a road map. AB 197 is the vehicle that gets us there.

“Assembly Bill 197 (E. Garcia) provides the mechanisms to make sure the goals we set in SB 32 are reached. Greater legislative oversight, as well as agency accountability and data transparency from the Air Resources Board will only make our climate change efforts benefit all Californians.

“I thank the bill’s author, Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia, for his outstanding leadership on the historic climate change package approved by the Legislature.”
