AB 1395: The California Climate Crisis Act

AB 1395 (Muratsuchi) This bill would declare that it is the policy of the state to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions and reduce anthropogenic GHG emissions by at least 90 percent below the 1990 level no later than 2045, and to achieve and maintain net negative GHG emissions thereafter. The Climate Center supports this bill with amendments outlined in our Position Letter. The amendments are 1) To strengthen the bill and bring it into alignment with the latest climate science, we encourage a more ambitious deadline for the net zero emissions by 2045
goal: achieving net negative emissions by 2030; and 2) Remove provisions related to reliance on technological carbon capture and sequestration which is not a viable or reliable carbon removal strategy. STATUS: FAILED: Ordered to inactive file at the request of Senator Limón on August 31.
