Assemblymember Berman Responds to Governor Brown’s State of the State Address

Thursday, January 25, 2018

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Marc Berman (D-Palo Alto) released the following statement in response to Governor Brown’s 16th State of the State address today:

“The theme of Governor Brown’s final State of the State address was sustainability, which epitomizes his tenure as Governor. California has championed policies to combat climate change and protect our natural resources. We have extended Cap-and-Trade, increased renewable energy generation, and grown the number of zero-emission vehicles on our roads. In addition, we have increased our reserves through fiscally prudent budgeting, which will help us weather the next economic downtown and continue to invest in education and other programs critical to the 24th Assembly District and the state. Governor Brown’s commitment to sustainability will have lasting impacts, promising a greener, more prosperous future.”
