Proposition 23

Suspend pollution control laws until unemployment falls below 5.5%
California Ballot Propositions - November 2nd 2010

Would suspend the implementation of AB 32, the Global Warming Act of 2006, until California's unemployment rate drops to 5.5% or below for four consecutive quarters. AB 32 requires that greenhouse gas emission levels in the state be cut to 1990 levels by 2020 through a comprehensive greenhouse-gas-reduction program that includes increased renewable energy and cleaner fuel requirements, and mandatory emission reporting and fee requirements for major polluters such as power plants and oil refineries. The process of cutting greenhouse gas emissions in the state is slated under AB 32 to begin in 2012.

Official Election Results:

Yes: 3,733,883 [38.4%]
No: 5,974,564 [61.6%]
