We need to reduce our dependence on foreign oil

By Jim Fitzgerald

Candidate for State Senator; District 15

This information is provided by the candidate
My first bill will reduce the demand for gas in California
My Bill will require all new government passenger vehicles purchased by the State to be Hybrids or Electric cars. No more Suburbans or limousines will be purchased by the State. All new California Highway patrol cars will also be Hybrids or Electric. Police cars in other countries get better gas mileage than the US law-enforcement vehicles now in use in California. A study will also be done to determine the feasibility of changing all current fleets of trucks, busses, forklifts and heavy equipment to run on Natural Gas. Reducing the State agencies' demand for gas will decrease the demand for oil. Without having to set up cap and trade program that may not work during these tough economic times.
