AB 262:

Buy Clean California Act

Author: Assemblymember Rob Bonta and Assemblymember Susan Eggman

This bill requires the state to spend public dollars on infrastructure materials consistent with state climate pollution reduction goals. California spends about $10 billion a year on infrastructure like roads, bridges, and public buildings. By focusing California’s infrastructure purchasing power, AB 262 will help California meet its already established greenhouse gas reduction goals.

About California Environmental Voters

California Environmental Voters (formerly the California League of Conservation Voters) believes the climate crisis is here and this moment requires transformative change. 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. We organize voters, elect and train candidates, and hold lawmakers accountable for bold policy change. We won’t stop until we have resilient, healthy, thriving communities, and a democracy and economy that is just and sustainable for all.
