For those following the fate of this year’s suite of California climate legislation, Senator Pavley’s SB 32 and Senator De Leon’s SB 350 were brought to a vote in the Senate this morning and both passed easily. I wrote about these bills here. SB 32 would enshrine California’s goal, already set forth in executive orders, of reducing climate emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030, and to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. SB 350 sets goals of reaching a 50% reduction in petroleum use from motor vehicles; generating 50% of our electricity from renewable power sources; and doubling energy efficiency in existing buildings, all by 2030. The bills still need to pass through the Assembly.
