The Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32) has been the primary focus of E2 Southern California's advocacy this month. This landmark legislation, which passed the Legislature on August 31 and now goes to the Governor's desk, will not only reduce global warming pollution in California back to 1990 levels by 2020, but will also send the market signal needed to make investments in clean technologies, ultimately establishing California as the leader in the world-wide Cleantech market and enabling the state to compete in the 21st century carbon-conscious global marketplace.

From July 24 through August 25, E2 Southern California members worked to create broader support for AB 32. When it was first introduced, AB 32 had three co-authors in the Assembly and one in the Senate. It now has 42 in the Assembly and 15 in the Senate. Building upon the increasing momentum behind AB 32, E2 Southern California Members David Groves, David Rosenstein, Jon Slangerup, Kathleen and Stephen Unger, and E2 friend, Dayna Bochco, organized letters of support from Southern California businesses, placed phone calls into key legislative and executive offices, and attended district office meetings with senior staffers for State Senator Murray as well as Assembly Members Chavez, Negrete-McLeod, Calderon, and Bermudez. Kathleen and Stephen Unger initiated a call between E2 Climate Team members and Assemblyman Richman to address his questions on the bill. Special thanks to Chapter Leaders Lee Stein and Tim Sexton, who requested these meetings on behalf of E2.
