Williams Releases Statement on Governor’s Executive Order to Reduce Greenhouse Gases

Assemblyman Das Williams, D-Carpinteria, released the following statement Wednesday regarding Gov. Jerry Brown’s executive order to reduce greenhouse gases:

“I'm thrilled with the governor's announcement. The goals in his executive order are ambitious but critical. Achieving a 40 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 will help us avoid the worst effects of climate change, and place California’s leadership as an example for a strong international agreement on climate change.

“I applaud the governor’s attention to California’s need to adapt to the unavoidable impacts of climate change. This executive order motivates the Legislature to pass strong measures on these issues. To that end, I look forward to working with the governor on Assembly Bill 645, which establishes a 50 percent renewable energy target for 2030.

"This, being one of my priority bills, just cleared two major policy committees in the last two weeks and moves on to the Assembly Appropriations Committee. I am proud to be a part of a continued movement to reduce our carbon footprint.”

— Lourdes Jimenez is the chief of staff for Assemblyman 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!
