2022 - Assembly Bill 1279 (Muratsuchi, Al), The California Climate Crisis Act. (Chaptered)
Office of Legislative Affairs
Establishes the policy of the State to achieve carbon neutrality as soon as possible, but no later than 2045 and maintain net negative greenhouse gas emissions thereafter, and to ensure that by 2045 Statewide anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are reduced at least 85 percent below 1990 levels. The bill requires CARB to ensure that the Scoping Plan identifies and recommends measures to achieve carbon neutrality, and to identify and implement policies and strategies that enable carbon dioxide removal and carbon capture, utilization, and storage technologies to complement these emission reductions.
