SACRAMENTO, CA — Today, California Environmental Voters (EnviroVoters) released the following statement in response to Governor Gavin Newsom’s release of the May Revise.

Statement from Mary Creasman, Chief Executive Officer, California Environmental Voters:

“While we wait for more details next week on the revised state budget proposal, we thank the Governor for including funding for Senate Bills 253 and 261, as well as other new laws, in this outline. These new corporate climate accountability laws are already catalyzing global change and innovation as multinational companies prepare to measure and disclose their total climate emissions for the first time ever. 

Our leaders are facing unprecedented decisions that will have real consequences for Californians. We won’t be able to protect communities now or in the future without sustainable and ongoing funding to transition to clean energy and create resilient communities and landscapes. The Governor and Legislature have a tough road ahead in the next month. Cutting corporate handouts and committing to a climate bond should be a given right now. 

We appreciate the thoughtfulness and diligence of our leaders during this time, and look forward to partnering with them to finalize a courageous budget and climate bond by the end of June.”

California has the policy solutions to stop climate change but lacks the political will to do it at the rate and scale that’s necessary. EnviroVoters exists to build the political power to solve the climate crisis, advance justice, and create a roadmap for global action.
