Expanding California's Clean Economy

By Darrell Steinberg
State Senate President pro Tempore

We all know there is one, and only one immediate challenge confronting California – and that is the state budget.

As the Governor outlined in his State of the State message, the budget is and remains our top priority. We cannot recover the economic health of our state until we put our fiscal house in order as quickly as possible.

But we also must continue taking leadership in our ongoing effort to strengthen California’s economy by supporting emerging industries and creating jobs for Californians.  Our budget condition demands we do so in a manner both fiscally responsible and smart. The Democrats Clean Energy Jobs Initiative does exactly that.
