Yesterday Governor Brown approved our Million Clean Cars bill. I'm excited to tell you that this morning, he signed a statewide plastic bag ban into law.
Thanks to you, the work of our volunteers, campus leaders, the thousands of students who signed petitions, and our coalition partners, we won our Million Clean Cars Campaign!
The state legislature voted to approve the Million Clean Cars program last month and Governor Brown signed the bill just last week.
