American Lung Association Applauds California Governor Brown for Signing Clean Energy Bill

In response to the California Governor Jerry Brown signing the California Senate Bill 100, Harold P. Wimmer, National President and CEO of the American Lung Association, issued the following statement: 

“Climate change and poor air quality are threats to public health in California. Once again, California has shown bold leadership - at a critical time – in pursuit of our clean energy, clean air future. We applaud Governor Brown for signing Senate Bill 100 into law at an historic moment in the fight for healthy air for all Californians.

“Air pollution contributes to asthma attacks and lung cancer, hospitalizations and even early death. Right now, 90 percent of Californians live in areas that experience poor air quality at some point during the year. Reducing carbon pollution will fight climate change and improve local air quality to save lives.”
