On Thursday, February 28, the University of California Center Sacramento (UCCS) teamed up with Capitol Weekly to present a day-long conference on California’s new “cap and trade” program. State Senator Fran Pavley, author of California’s landmark AB 32, delivered the noon keynote.
As with past Capitol Weekly-UCCS events, the conference was divided into three panels, in addition to Pavley’s keynote. Topics included the logistics of cap-and-trade, financial impacts on industry and the state, environmental benefits and — of course — the politics of cap-and-trade.
Among the panelists were Anthony Eggert of the UC Davis Policy Institute; Timothy O’Connor of the Environmental Defense Fund; Dorothy Rothrock of the California Manufacturers and Technology Association; and Linda Adams, former administrator of Cal EPA.
