Gov. Jerry Brown holds up four bills he signed related to climate change on Sept. 14, 2016, in downtown Fresno. One of the bills, AB 1613, directs $900 million in “cap-and-trade” auction funds to greenhouse gas reducing programs that benefit disadvantaged communities, support clean transportation and protect natural ecosystems. However, Brown failed to persuade the Legislature to reauthorize the cap-and-trade program of limiting carbon emissions.

  • Dan Walters: Big election, but most people 'could care less'

    The Sacramento Bee's Dan Walters is excited that for the first time in a long time Californians were actually treated to a full blown presidential campaign, with all nominees from both parties campaigning up and down the state. Despite California voters actually being treated like they mattered, it still seems as if most people 'could care less.'
