Vote No on Proposition 23

Sue Nepstead, Treasurer, League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County
of Grass Valley

Proposition 23 is a measure that would virtually kill the landmark Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32).

It would suspend the implementation of AB 32 until the state unemployment rate is 5.5 percent or lower for a full year. That has happened only three times in the last four decades!

This dangerous proposition would effectively repeal clean energy and air pollution standards indefinitely and jeopardize dozens of regulations that promote energy efficiency and pollution reduction.

Proponents, primarily out-of-state oil companies, say this measure is needed to preserve jobs, but in fact it will threaten hundreds of thousands of clean-energy jobs.

We must promote California’s role as an innovator and investor in a clean-tech economy.

Join the League of Women Voters in voting No on Proposition 23.
