Call or email Senator Laird NOW and tell him to oppose Newsom’s manipulation to fund dirty and dangerous energy, and instead invest in clean, zero-emissions renewables.
In a stunning turn of events, Governor Newsom’s fear of power outages like the kind in 2020, which are rare and blown out of proportion, has led him to irrationally negotiate, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, an energy package that would give fossil fuel energy plants a longer life and take away local control. You, as a California resident, will have NO say in the matter!
As CalMatters reported: “…the energy package also could allocate billions to fossil fuel power sources, including investments in retrofitting highly-polluting diesel backup generators.”Newsom’s back-peddling on California’s commitment to rid carbon-polluting energy plants from the state’s power grid, and to potentially keep dirty and dangerous Diablo open past its decommissioning date by 2025, is misguided and shortsighted.
TAKE ACTION NOW!
CALL or EMAIL State Senator Laird TODAY and tell him to oppose funding fossil fuels and NO to Diablo Canyon Power Plant!

I am a (San Luis Obispo County/California) resident and am writing (or calling) to express my objection to using the California State budget to include billions of dollars in tax-payer money to prolong the operations of fossil fuel plants and Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant beyond their respective closing dates.Instead, urge Governor Newsom to invest in renewables to add more resources to California’s clean energy portfolio.
