2020 - Assembly Bill 2954 (Rivas, Robert) California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006: Climate Goal for Natural and Working Lands (Dead)
Climate Change, Forestry and Wildfire Prevention
Office of Legislative Affairs
Would have required CARB by January 1, 2023, to identify an overall climate goal for the State’s natural and working lands to sequester carbon and reduce atmospheric greenhouse gas emissions as part of the next Scoping Plan Update. The bill also would have required CARB to identify actions that would help achieve the climate goal and integrate opportunities to enhance other public benefits. Finally, the bill would have required CARB to develop methods for State agencies to track greenhouse gas emission reductions, carbon sequestration, and co-benefits from natural and working lands over time as part of the next Scoping Plan Update. Held on suspense in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
