Leadership in Renewables and Healthier Communities
(Los Angeles, CA) – Recognized as a champion for clean air in California, Senator Kevin de León was presented today, Friday, July 15, 2011, with the Leadership in Government Award by the Coalition for Clean Air at their 40th Anniversary Bash.
Environmental Protection Agency Secretary Linda Adams introduced the Senator today calling him a champion for clean air in California’s poorest communities.
Senator De León is carrying Senate Bill 535 known as the California Communities Healthy Air Revitalization Trust (CHART), which helps fulfill the commitments made by our state in the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32) prescribing that we invest in neighborhoods that continue to suffer from higher levels of pollution and which are least able to confront the expected impacts of the climate change crisis.
