Environmental Platform

By Judy Jones

Candidate for Member of the State Assembly; District 73

This information is provided by the candidate
My district is one of the best places in the world to live, and we need to keep it that way for ourselves, our tourists and future generations.
Government/business partnerships can help solve many of our environmental problems, and it as a great way to create more jobs, grow more businesses and improve the economic health and stability of our district.

I will work to do the following in Sacramento:

  • Maintain parks and open space, opposing toll roads that would cut through state parks.
  • Promote a regional at least "clean ocean" fee of $4.00 to $6.00 monthly per household to reduce beach pollution from dirty storm-drain run-off all along the California coastline, modeled after the City of San Clemente.
  • Support all efforts to transition to renewable energy, especially wind and solar, and to wean California from its dependence on fossil fuels and nuclear power.
  • Support the Kyoto Treaty and work to minimize the effects of global warming.
  • Oppose any new off-shore oil drilling or gas development.
  • Support and defend the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
  • Support the mandatory use of recyclable water in all new construction.
  • Support taxes and incentives to benefit individuals and corporations who invest in renewable energy.
  • Support California's fight for higher gas mileage and less emissions than national standards.
