Assemblymember Williams Joins Gov. Brown for Landmark Climate Legislation

Governor Brown (center) signs Senate Bill 350.

Less than one month after Senate Bill 350 passed out of the legislature, Assemblymember Das Williams (D-Carpinteria), chair of the assembly Natural Resources Committee, joined Governor Brown, Senator Kevin De León and other legislative leaders at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles for a signing ceremony of this landmark climate legislation.

“I am profoundly honored to be an integral part of this monumental measure,” said Assemblymember Williams. “With Governor Brown’s signature today, California becomes a world-wide leader on climate change and energy efficiency. 

"We will see the benefits of this legislation for generations to come. It is my hope that the rest of the country, and world, will take the same bold steps to combat pollution from carbon dioxide and other dangerous emissions,” he said.
SB 350 requires California to get 50 percent of its energy from alternative sources by the year 2030, and will double energy efficiency in buildings. 

— Lourdes Jiminez is the chief of staff of the Office of Assemblymember Das Williams.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
