UCLA News Week: California
Two UCLA faculty experts talk in this edition of UCLA News Week about the political origins and possible effects of Proposition 23 on the Nov. 2 ballot in California.
By tying future regulation of greenhouse gases to the state unemployment rate, the initiative would virtually repeal AB 32, a landmark environmental law acclaimed by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The experts are Matthew Kahn, professor with UCLA's Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, and Jim Newton, a senior fellow at the School of Public Affairs and editor-at-large of the Los Angeles Times.
