Subject: AB 32- Caps On Greenhouse Emissions
I just got word that the Governor and the legislature have come to an agreement and it is therefore expected that AB32 will pass both houses and be signed by the Governor. This bill would basically cap greenhouse emissions and is truly historic
Small Business California was I believe the first generic business group in the state to support this and we have been working hard in Sacramento and with legislators and the Governors people to get this done.
What makes this so great is that California will be able to plan for global warming which I think is now a scientific fact. We believe that planning certainly beats crisis management.
We also think this is going to create a huge industry and will provide opportunities for entrepreneurs to develop technologies to meet the demand that will be created by the cap. Small business will therefore be creating thousands of jobs which is what we do best.Lastly we think small businesses will have opportunities to find out how they can save energy and reduce our cost by using new technologies and learning about technologies that currently exist
