Investing in Climate Despite Budget Uncertainty


California’s legislative climate champions are going to be tested as this year’s estimated state budget deficit ranges from $38 to $53 billion according to the California State Senate’s Early Action Budget report. As the fifth-largest economy in the world, California must lead on climate investments, but Governor Newsom’s current climate budget proposal includes a whopping $4.7 billion in cuts and deferrals. In this webinar, experts, legislators, and activists explained the California state budget process and its politics. We also explored why California must preserve climate investments and end tax breaks for the oil and gas industry, as well as discontinue other dead-end infrastructure expenditures like freeway expansion.
