ACTION ALERT! Priority Legislation in January 2020

350 Bay Area Action focuses on state climate legislation and electing stronger climate champions. 2020 is an absolutely critical year for increasing our efforts. In January, when the California Legislature reconvenes, they’ll be voting on two key bills that failed to pass in the final days of the session last year:

  • (SB54) to Ban Single Use Plastics and,
  • (AB 345) to Restrict Oil & Gas locations, and protect schools, health clinics and homes from Big Oil & Gas expanding their operations too close by.

Action toolkit

These two bills must pass by the end of January! To get them passed, call your Assemblymember TODAY & thru the end of January.

…and tweet at them!

350 Bay Area Action Legislative Committee: working for progressive climate legislation in California

The Legislative Committee of 350 Bay Area Action works on state climate, clean energy, and climate justice legislation through public education and advocacy at the district level and in Sacramento. We study, track, and recommend positions, direct outreach to legislators at their Sacramento or local offices, testify at committee hearings, and work with other environmental, social justice, and progressive groups to promote strong climate legislation.

Legislative Committee activities include:

  • Legislative training: how to track legislation and prepare for meetings with legislators
  • Analyzing and tracking bills for action
  • Writing fact sheets, blogs and social media to inform and activate supporters
  • Meetings with legislators
  • Letter writing, calling and lobbying
  • Attending meetings and hearings in Sacramento
  • Working with other groups on legislative campaigns
  • Following state rule making and regulatory actions once bills are passed (e.g. Air Resources Board)
