Legislating Energy Poverty
Public opinion polls show that most Californians see climate change as a threat to the state’s economy and quality of life, yet the state’s approach is hurting poor, rural, inland, and minority communities. PRI’s Wayne Winegarden, Nick Loris of the Heritage Foundation, and John C. Gamboa of California Community Builders explore how market-driven policies can more effectively and affordably chart California’s energy future. Part 3 of our 4-part series on how free-market ideas can build new, diverse coalitions in California. Recorded at PRI’s “California Ideas in Action” conference in Sacramento.
