Manufacturers applaud California leaders for passing a more cost-effective path to environmental goals

 July 17, 2017 Sacramento, CA -- California Manufacturers & Technology Association president Dorothy Rothrock made the following statement today regarding the passage of a package of reforms to extend cap-and-trade:

"On behalf of manufacturers in California I want to thank the Governor and lawmakers for extending the cap-and-trade program to help meet our climate change goals while protecting manufacturing jobs and keeping costs affordable for the broader economy. We are also pleased that the bill package will promote new manufacturing investments by extending until 2030 the sales and use tax exemption for the purchase of manufacturing equipment. The combination of these policies sends a strong message that California wants manufacturing to continue to be the engine of the state's economy and provide middle class or better jobs for hundreds of thousands of California workers."
