SB350, a key piece of the Governor's climate agenda, has an important hearing before the Assembly Utilities & Commerce Committee on July 6th. SB350 sets three targets for 2030 that will cut greenhouse gas emissions: sourcing 50% of the state's electricity from renewables by that date, significantly increasing building energy efficiency, and reducing petroleum use by 50%. You can support the bill by attending the hearing in Sacramento, and/or calling committee members before the hearing!

- The goals in SB 350 are achievable.
- California can and should do even more.
- Executing the targets in SB350 (or even higher ones) will bring more jobs and economic development to California than continuing to rely on fossil fuels.
- Implementing the measures in SB 350 can produce a number of health co-benefits for California’s population from cleaner air, more energy efficiency for low-income households, and cleaner energy sources.
