What is Cap and Trade?

The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, AB 32, is a multi-year program to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in California to 1990 levels by 2020 and 40% below 1990 levels by 2030.

Proceeds from the Cap and Trade Program support a wide range of programs and projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support major economic, environmental and public health benefits for Californians, including benefits to the most disadvantaged communities, low-income communities, and low-income households.

The Legislature and Governor appropriate money from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) to State agencies through the Budget process.
