The office of Santee's State (R-77) recently began filming and releasing one-minute online videos of the representative speaking about specific topics dealt with (or not) in Sacramento that drive him crazy.
In this video, Assemblyman Jones talks about a greenhouse gas cap and trade program implemented by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) that he says will drive more businesses out of the state and add to the list of reasons that "California is the worst state to do business in."
"The program will be economic and environmental disaster," said Jones in the video.
The CARB website explains the program:
"The AB 32 Scoping Plan identifies a cap-and-trade program as one of the strategies California will employ to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that cause climate change. This program will help put California on the path to meet its goal of reducing GHG emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2020, and ultimately achieving an 80% reduction from 1990 levels by 2050. Under cap-and-trade, an overall limit on GHG emissions from capped sectors will be established by the cap-and-trade program and facilities subject to the cap will be able to trade permits (allowances) to emit GHGs."
