Proposition 23 suspends provisions of AB 32 -- California's onerous, job-killing Global Warming Law, until the unemployment rate falls to 5.5% or lower for four consecutive quarters. AB 32 authorizes the California Air Resources Control Board (also known as CARB or ARB), the California Energy Commission and the Climate Action Registry (all unknown, unelected, and unaccountable bureaucrats) to MAKE and ENFORCE any Rule, Regulation, Order, Emission Limitation, Emissions Reduction Measure or Market-Based Compliance Mechanism. Violations of this law are a CRIME.AB 32 covers seven gases, including carbon dioxide, a naturally occurring gas necessary for plant growth. This law can and will be applied to virtually ANY industrial manufacturing or production facility in California, including aluminum manufacturing, iron and steel manufacturing, glass production, and electronics manufacturing. AB32 is an ill-conceived and ill-timed law that will further drive companies and jobs away from California. It is a law that California can't afford in these economic times.
