SF Bay Area PSR has joined The Union of Concerned Scientists in support 0f AB 493: California Clean Car Discount to Reduce Global Warming Pollution.

This bill, introduced by Assembly Member Ira Ruskin, will help make cleaner cars, trucks, and SUVs more affordable through rebates of up to $2500 on the purchase of new vehicles that emit low levels of global warming pollution.

This program could wipe out nearly a third of California’s global warming pollution from cars and trucks by 2030–equivalent to taking almost 20 million vehicles off the road.

The California assembly will vote on the bill in January 2008.
