Ten years after the passage of California’s landmark climate legislation, SB 375, the state still faces an uphill climb in reducing emissions from passenger vehicles (read more in the LA Times and Vox).
Yet the potential of SB 375 holds as true today as it did when passed. If regions effectively create and implement Sustainable Communities Strategies to meet ambitious emissions goals, SB 375 could be a major catalyst across the state for building affordable homes near transit and investing in sustainable transportation choices. (This recent article on SB 375 in Curbed is an excellent overview.)
SB 150, signed by the Governor in October 2017, requires the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to evaluate regions’ progress in reaching SB 375-related emissions targets. The sobering first-ever SB 150 progress report was just released (read more in the Los Angeles Times, the Sacramento Bee, and Streetsblog California).
In this funder-only webinar, you’ll learn about:
- SB 375’s successes and challenges so far
- Key findings from the first-ever, just-released SB 150 progress report
- How funders can make a difference
- Carey Knecht, California Air Resources Board
- Chanell Fletcher, ClimatePlan
- Katie Valenzuela, Joint Legislative Committee on Climate Change Policies
- Moderator: Nicola Hedge, The San Diego Foundation
This event is co-sponsored by the Climate and Energy Funders Group.
