NEARLY 5 MILLION CALIFORNIA JOBS AFFECTED BY TARIFFS

On July 2, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce released an  analysis  showing the state-by-state impact of retaliatory tariffs from China, the European Union, Mexico, and Canada, which have been imposed in response to new U.S. tariffs on imported goods. Raising tariffs will have adverse consequences and fails to consider the impact on our allies and trading partners.

Why a Regional Power Grid Brings Energy Security
Reliable energy infrastructure is a hallmark of a modern world, and affordable power is vital for economic development and social cohesion. Ensuring that electricity is both affordable and reliable are ultimately the responsibility of our state government leaders when they set the ground rules for how electricity is generated and how it is transmitted around the grid.
