California Bill to Curb Greenhouse Gas Emissions Gets Stuck in Assembly

May 23, 2002

A bill to reduce greenhouse gas emissions like carbon dioxide from vehicles has come to a standstill in the California Assembly. A number of legislators who initially supported the bill have changed their minds, and environmentalists acknowledge they are a few votes shy of sending the bill to the governor’s office. Carmakers say the bill could raise the prices of large vehicles and cost consumers thousands of dollars with only limited environmental improvement. Environmentalists argue that the bill would make California a leader in reducing the gases that contribute to global warming, and that existing inexpensive technology could be added to cars to make them run cleaner. Assemblyman Fran Pavley, who introduced the bill, said she would delay bringing the bill to the Assembly for a final vote as she works to regain support.
