In Support Of Overturning EPA's Rejection Of California's Emission Standards

Whereas, California has the right to have more stringent auto emissions than the those of the federal government if it gets a waiver from the EPA; and

Whereas, Steve Johnson, the EPA administrator, rejected California's standards which were intended to lessen global warming without any legal or scientific grounds; and

Whereas, California Attorney General Jerry Brown, joined by Attorneys General of many other states, and has sued the EPA to allow the proposed emissions standards to go into effect;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Los Angeles County Democratic Party support the California law suit against the EPA; and

Be it further resolved, that the Los Angeles County Democratic Party inform the California Congressional delegation, Governor Schwarzenegger, California Attorney General Jerry Brown, the Los Angeles Times and the media of this position.
