Proposition 23

An ongoing series about California’s Proposition 23

California Ballot Proposition 23 will overturn California’s AB 32, The Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. Specifically, Prop 23 will freeze AB 32’s provisions until California’s unemployment rate stays at 5.5% or below for four consecutive quarters; opponents point to its funding by out-of-state interests and energy companies, and say AB 32 will benefit California in the long run because of the new companies that will invest in the state, creating high paying jobs.

During the next several weeks, we will run guest postings from leaders in industry, government, academia, non-profits, and the investment community. We look forward to a hosting a conversation full of vigor on Prop 23, and will bring up several points of view on a very important and contentious initiative that could set the tone for the future of clean energy beyond California’s borders. EOS Climate is sponsoring the series.

If you are a stakeholder in this debate, and are interested in contributing a guest post, we would like to hear from you. Please send an email to Leon Kaye with a brief explanation of your take on Proposition 23 and how it could affect your organization or community. We look forward to hearing your point of view.
