CLCV Supported
Passed Senate 24-15 (6/3/2015)
Failed Assembly 30-35 (9/8/2015, scored)
Granted Reconsideration in Assembly (9/9/2015, not scored)

SB 32 would have set greenhouse gas reduction limits of 40 percent below 1990 levels in 2030 and 80 percent below 1990 levels in 2050, consistent with the level of reductions climate scientists warn will be required to avoid catastrophic climate disruptions.
