Jimmy Gomez on Energy & Oil
Existing law provide vouchers to help California fleets to purchase hybrid and zero-emission trucks and buses. This bill would establish the Charge Ahead California Initiative, to place in service at least 1,000,000 zero-emission and near-zero-emission vehicles by January 1, 2023, and to increase access for disadvantaged, low-income, and moderate-income communities to zero-emission and near-zero-emission vehicles.
Legislative Outcome: 8/27/14: Passed Assembly, 53-24-2, including AYE vote by Rep. Jimmy Gomez; 8/28/14: Passed Senate, 26-11-3; 9/21/14: signed by Gov. Brown.
OnTheIssues Explanation: "Fracking" extracts more oil and gas from otherwise non-productive wells. The controversy includes that fracking causes earthquakes (hence the "scientific study"), as well as issues about disposal of the large volumes of potentially toxic liquids used. This bill slows the implementation of fracking. (Jimmy Gomez voted YEA).
