Last week, California enacted some of the nation's most aggressive climate measures in history as Governor Newsom signed a sweeping package of legislation to cut pollution, protect Californians from big polluters, and accelerate the state's transition to clean energy – an essential piece of the California Climate Commitment, a record $54 billion investment in climate action.
"In partnership with the Legislature, we just passed the most bold, most comprehensive, and most significant climate policy of any jurisdiction anywhere in the world – big oil lost and they're not used to losing," said Governor Newsom. "Later is too late to act – lifestyles, places, and traditions are being destroyed – and California is leading the world in our efforts to combat climate change."
