The Service Employees International Union respectfully request your “aye” vote on AB 398 and AB 617 when it is before you on the Floor.
Combined, these measures reflect our state’s dedication to get clean air for all Californians while protecting our environment and economy from the harmful effects of climate change.
Too many working people in California, including SEIU members and our families, live and work where the impact of air pollution associated with climate change is prevalent and severe — whether it’s a family member who has asthma or another chronic illness linked to air pollution, or poor air quality forcing everyone to remind inside. These measures recognize that protecting the environment and improving public health are inextricably linked.
AB 398 and AB 617:
SEIU proudly supports the efforts to advance climate equity and improve air quality for our communities.
We strongly urge your “aye” vote on AB 398 and AB 617.
