Sustaining our Clean Air Progress

As the federal government considers changes to environmental regulations which are eliciting both anticipation and trepidation, California signals it will continue to pursue its role as a leader in the efforts to address global climate change. This is good news for an overwhelming majority of Californians (81%) who view climate change as a very serious (54%) or somewhat serious (27%) threat to the state's future economy and quality of life, according to a recent poll by the Public Policy Institute of California.

California Lawmakers Propose Adopting Federal Environmental Regulations

"Californians can't afford to go back to the days of unregulated pollution," said Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León. The proposed legislation would prohibit state and local agencies from adopting rules that are less stringent than those currently in place under the federal Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Safe Water Drinking Drinking Act, Endangered Species Act and worker safety standards.
