Gov. Jerry Brown holds up four bills he signed related to climate change on Sept. 14, 2016, in downtown Fresno. One of the bills, AB 1613, directs $900 million in “cap-and-trade” auction funds to greenhouse gas reducing programs that benefit disadvantaged communities, support clean transportation and protect natural ecosystems. However, Brown failed to persuade the Legislature to reauthorize the cap-and-trade program of limiting carbon emissions.
