Assemblymember Sebastian Ridley-Thomas Releases Statement on the Future of Climate Change Policy

Friday, June 2, 2017

Sacramento -Assemblymember Sebastian Ridley-Thomas released the following statement on the future of Climate Change Policy:

"Climate change remains a global threat, which makes the extension of California’s Cap-and-Trade program vital for our future. As the Legislature debates the future of climate change policy, Greater Los Angeles must receive an equitable share of funding to improve green investments and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Southern California is home to nearly half of the state’s population, but has received roughly 30 percent of the funding available. Greater Los Angeles, and specifically my constituents, have been shortchanged and I will no longer support any proposal that does not promote equity, inclusion, and relief for the people I represent."
