Courage Campaign Slams Cap-and-Trade Proposal
Statement from Eddie Kurtz, executive director of the California-based Courage Campaign, on Assembly Bill 398, the proposed cap-and-trade extension:
“California can help ensure the world is still a liveable place for our grandchildren and great grandchildren, but only if we demonstrate the necessary leadership. We must reduce carbon emissions as aggressively as possible and do so without throwing our most vulnerable communities under the bus. Democrats in California must find the courage to reject the selfish, short-term priorities — and campaign contributions — of corporate polluters and embrace a climate policy that protects all Californians. We can do this, but not with AB398.”
