LAO: AB 32 would cost California jobs

March 8, 2010

Power plants like this one in Morro Bay would be affected by implementation of AB 32, which mandates cuts in carbon emissions.

California’s legislative analyst has opined that the implementation of AB 32, the state law to limit carbon emissions, would cost California jobs, at least in the short term. The conclusion, which came in response to a request from state Sen. Dave Cogdill, contradicts the stand of the Air Resources Board. Cogdill is calling for the law’s suspension. See the LAO letter to Cogdill here.
