ClimatePlan is excited to announce our next webinar, “Local Ballot Measures: The Future of CA Climate Policy?”. It will be next Tuesday, July 26th, at 4 pm; click here to register.
This webinar is part of our decolonizing transportation funding campaign. The campaign aims to increase transparency and access regarding transportation decision-making, policies, and funding. Read more about the campaign here. Our most recent effort was a report card that graded ten state transportation funding programs against ten criteria important to the ClimatePlan network.
Now we want to zoom into the local level. Specifically, we want to explore ballot measures and local option sales tax (LOSTs). LOSTs are a common source of local transportation funding.
Join us to learn how advocates on the ground across CA are mobilizing around current local ballot measures: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/8016572238671/WN_mQdkYvkTTa-er9TEKFzzxQRead more
California has been considered a national and global leader in addressing climate change by adopting climate policy that sets bold greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets and addresses historical inequities in our transportation sector. Despite the suite of aspirational targets, reports such as the draft 2022 Scoping Plan and draft SB150 report indicate that California will not meet its climate targets. This is why ClimatePlan is co-sponsoring AB 2438, a bill to align transportation spending with our climate targets.
With the rise of global temperatures and declarations of climate emergencies there is a clear need for bold climate leadership. Will the CA Senate Appropriations Committee bridge the gap between aspirational goals with the tangible policy needed to accomplish them by voting AYE for AB 2438?Read more
