Wolk’s Climate Change Bill Gets Fiscal Approval

The Assembly Committee on Appropriations voted 13-6 Wednesday to approve a measure by Senator Lois Wolk, D-Solano, to promote the protection and management of natural and working lands as part of California’s ongoing efforts to meet its climate change goals. “From farms to rangelands, wetlands to parks, California’s natural and working lands have the potential to store considerable amounts of carbon,” Wolk said. “SB 1386 will reinforce that investment in these lands’ management is an important strategy in meeting the California’s ongoing efforts to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.”
