SACRAMENTO, California – Two bills authored by State Senator Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) to help protect low-income families, Senate Bill 360 and Senate Bill 469, have passed the California State Legislature and are on their way to the Governor’s Desk for approval.
“Understanding and alleviating the impact of poverty isn’t a simple, one-bill fix,” said Senator Skinner. “Together, SB 360 and SB 469 tackle problems in two different state programs to help end and not intensify poverty for low-income families.”
Senator Skinner and colleagues say it’s time to #DitchDiesel. Converting school buses and trucks to ZEV and low-emissions vehicles protect our children’s lungs and help all of our communities breathe easier.
