CLCV Supported
Passed Senate 21-15 (6/7/07)
Held in Assembly Appropriations Committee (2007)
Passed Assembly 49-22 (8/25/08)
Passed Senate concurrence 25-14 (8/30/08)
Signed by the Governor (9/30/08)

Transportation is the single largest contributor to California’s greenhouse gas emissions, and we will never meet our AB 32 targets without changing land use patterns that lead to sprawl, traffic congestion and long commutes. SB 375 (Steinberg) establishes both fiscal and regulatory incentives for cities and counties to conform their general plans to required regional plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect valuable habitat and farmland through smart growth strategies like infill development and transit oriented development.
