SPECIAL ELECTION in California (34th Congressional District, L.A.), Tue. June 6, 2017.
Vote Climate U.S. PAC endorses Jimmy Gomez
Jimmy Gomez (D) LCV Endorsed
Jimmy Gomez On The Issues:
Jimmy received the Green Leadership Award for “bold environmental leadership” from Green California, a coalition of over 100 environmental organizations, and is endorsed by the Sierra Club. In the Assembly, Jimmy advanced bills to fund grants for river revitalization and sped up deadlines to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. Jimmy will continue to fight for environmental justice, preserving our natural resources, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, investing in mass transit, smart development and will make fighting the effects of climate change a priority – this includes fighting Obama Administration policy rollbacks by climate change deniers from the Trump Administration and holding them responsible.
Environmental Justice Wins in the 2016 Legislative Session:
AB 1550 by Assembly Member Jimmy Gomez increases the set aside of climate investments going to vulnerable communities, allocating additional Greenhouse Gas Reduction Funds for low-income households and areas directly adjacent to overburdened communities.
