DISTRICT UPDATES

 

Well, that's that. The cap-and-trade program has been reauthorized through 2030. After losing the votes of a few Democrats, Governor Brown picked up a few Republicans after the Legislature agreed to Assembly Minority Leader Chad Mayes's proposed constitutional amendment to give the minority more of a say in how the proceeds of auction sales are spent.

The Bee's Jim Miller looks at whether you'll be paying more at the pump with the extension of the cap-and-trade law. "It’s likely, just as the existing cap-and-trade program has already. Yet no one knows how much gas will cost in the future, let alone what share could be attributed to extending cap-and-trade."

Legislature delays vote on housing-bills package
sfgate.com
California lawmakers have delayed until late August voting on a package of bills aimed at spurring a boom in affordable housing. Gov. Jerry Brown is negotiating a deal with state senators and Assembly members on 130 bills aimed at easing restrictions on development and creating new funding sources. [...] Brown and leaders of the Senate and Assembly issued a joint statement late Monday saying the package won’t be ready until after lawmakers’ summer recess. Several people involved with the process said legislators had been too busy with a measure extending the state’s cap-and-trade system on greenhouse gas emissions to focus on the housing bills.
