Low carbon fuel standard is a boon for California

By John Chiang, Special to The Sacramento Bee

As our state’s investor-in-chief, my job is all about smart investing for the future and for the benefit of all Californians. That’s why I support our low carbon fuel standard and look forward to its re-adoption by the California Air Resources Board this week.

California has grown accustomed to pioneering energy policies ahead of the rest of the nation and the world. Since we rank among the 10 largest global economies, the standards we incubate here often influence decisions by other states, the federal government and other countries. When California gets it right, jobs are created, the economy grows and we enjoy a cleaner environment.

We are getting it right with the low carbon fuel standard.
