A measure on the November ballot, Proposition 39, will provide funding for clean energy, sustainability and energy efficiency projects across California.
For the first five years, Proposition 39 specifically puts half of every new dollar brought in from closing this loophole right into energy efficiency projects. Schools and public buildings will be retrofitted, existing energy efficiency projects will get financial and technical support, and programs to train Californians for jobs in the energy sector will get a boost.

A broad host of environmental, health and clean energy groups support the measure - including the California Environmental Justice Alliance, the American Lung Association in California, Natural Resources Defense Council & Clean Tech Los Angeles.
