Close vote on CA Prop 26
Proposition 26 is likely to be a close vote since Prop 23 has gained so much attention. By requiring a two-thirds majority vote in order to pass fees on major emitters, Prop 26 could hinder implementation of AB32.
So far out-of-state fossil fuel companies like Chevron and Shell have poured in nearly $14 million in funding for a large advertising campaign hoping to further stall climate legislation.
The opposition to Prop 26 is seeking funding for radio broadcasts to quickly bring attention to the proposition’s impact on AB32.
