Governor Newsom’s proposed state budget includes billions in potential cuts to climate and energy investments but protects taxpayer-funded subsidies for oil and gas corporations.

Coming off the hottest year on record, California needs to strengthen critical climate programs, not cut them. Every dollar we invest in fighting the climate crisis today will save lives!

Facing a multi-billion-dollar deficit, Governor Newsom must eliminate all subsidies and tax breaks for fossil fuel corporations. Eliminating these subsidies will free up millions — if not billions — to invest in climate solutions for all. The state makes billions in subsidies and tax breaks available to fossil fuel corporations every year, even as they rake in record profits. It’s time to stop propping up corporate polluters and use our tax dollars to protect frontline community health, grow the clean energy economy, implement sustainable agricultural practices, and more. Governor Newsom has proposed eliminating three small fossil fuel subsidies, but he can and should go further. 

The governor and the legislature have until June 15 to finalize a budget, meaning you have just a couple of weeks to make your voice heard.
