A leading environmental group has called on Gov. Jerry Brown to take another look at the cap-and-trade rule adopted by the Air Resources Board late last year, saying the regulation doesn't go far enough to meet the standards set by the state's 2006 greenhouse gas emission reduction law.
In a letter sent Monday, Sierra Club Director Bill Magavern writes that the rule change approved at the end of former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's term "has some serious flaws that will limit its effectiveness in reducing emissions and generating green jobs, and call into question its compliance with the environmental justice requirements of AB 32."
"With your strong environmental record going back to the 1970s, and your experience with enforcing California's greenhouse gas laws as Attorney General, you are well-suited to the task of scrutinizing and revising the cap-and-trade rule adopted by the previous administration," the letter reads.
