Senator Bates explains why she is unable to support Senate Bill 350

June 3, 2015

Senator Bates explains why she is unable to support Senate Bill 350, which would require the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to reduce gas and diesel use by 50% and require that 50% of the total electricity sold to customers come from renewable resources by 2030. The bill doesn’t specify how those mandates would be reached without raising energy prices and would cede significant authority to CARB, an unelected bureaucracy.
