Proposition 23 Dissected

Hosted by

Los Angeles businesses are divided over Proposition 23, a measure that would postpone the implementation of AB 32, the greenhouse gas law that Governor Schwarzenegger sees as his legacy. Different polls show different results for where it now stands with the voters. Neither Jerry Brown nor Meg Whitman is supporting Prop 23, but Whitman says that, if she’s elected, she’ll postpone AB 32 for a year. Jerry Brown disputes Whitman’s claim that AB 32 would cost jobs in 97% of the economy, saying rather that it will help create new jobs in the developing green economy.
