Proposition 23 is known as the "California Jobs Initiative" or the dirty energy proposition. I hope every citizen will take the time to understand this bill as it will affect California's future for years.
One side claims we will lose jobs; the other says we'll gain jobs. Both may be right. If AB 32, the bill Proposition 23 would suspend, stays in effect, businesses will be required to reduce greenhouse gasses. However, "green" jobs are one of the fastest growing business sectors in California. So, it is also likely that acting now to mitigate pollution will put California at the forefront of the global move to sustainable energy practices, which will in turn create jobs that can't easily be outsourced beyond our borders. Job growth from innovation and hard work served us well in the past.
I encourage all spend the time to uncover the reality behind the "facts" touted by both sides. Listen to what neutral parties have to say.
