Lou Correa 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. Lou Correa; 8/28/14: Passed Senate, 26-11-3; 9/21/14: signed by Governor Brown.
The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Environment: Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
