California Republicans Move against Climate Policy

by William Yeatman on June 24, 2008

The Los Angeles Times reports that California Republican legislators plan to use upcoming budget talks to negotiate the costs of implementing AB 32, The Climate Solutions Act. Democrat lawmakers are proposing an $11 billion tax hike to help meet the state’s $15 billion deficit. GOP lawmakers object to increased taxes, but they are indicating that a compromise is possible if the governor exercises a provision in AB 32 that allows him to postpone implementation by declaring that it would cause the state "significant economic harm."
