“This November, voters in the Golden State will choose their next governor and a majority, 87 percent, polled in a new survey from the Public Policy Institute of California are concerned about the state’s environment and how Democrat Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom or Republican businessman John Cox will tackle those issues.
Newsom has said he would put California on the path to renewable energy if elected and eliminate diesel pollution by 2030, while Cox called California’s current environmental regulations “crushing” for business owners and said people are discouraged by all the regulations.
The survey comes on the heels of the Trump administration hinting that California’s environmental regulations will be challenged in the coming weeks, as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s acting head, Andrew Wheeler, told a group of reporters that there should be one standard for all states when it comes to fuel efficiency standards, according to Time magazine.”
