Stop Proposition 23
There is a proposition on the California ballot that, if passed, will essentially repeal California’s strongest environmental protection law designed to decrease auto dependency and reduce greenhouse gasses This initiative, known as proposition 23, threatens a body of law enacted over the last few years by a bipartisan coalition including Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Congress for the New Urbanism board, at its October meeting, voted to oppose proposition 23. The board believes California’s Climate protection law should be emulated, not eliminated.
I urge our California members to vote on Tuesday. Much is at stake.
