The new Greenhouse gas legislation “package” extends California’s  Gas Cap & Trade program and sets   new emission  reduction goals for 2030. It further sets emission reductions for methane.  The legislation has the potential to impact dairies, landfills and composting operations. The attached powerpoint which was originally presented at the  Manufacturers’ Council of the Central Valley September meeting, provides a review of California legislation regarding climate change law (SB32, AB 197 and SB 1383) together with an explanation of what it means to the Dairy Industry.  2016-09-21-mccv-presentation-sb-32-ab-197-cat-and-lns
