Gov. Brown signs Aguiar-Curry bill making Farmers Direct Marketing Program permanent

SACRAMENTO – On Friday Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB 768, authored by Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters), into law.

This bill, Aguiar-Curry’s first, makes the Direct Marketing Program operated by the California Department of Food and Agriculture permanent.

The program empowers our state’s farmers to sell their produce and products directly to customers at Certified Farmers’ Markets without being required to follow the same packing and labeling requirements as products in grocery stores.

Aguiar-Curry supports cap-and-trade extension

Assemblywoman Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, D-Winters, voted in favor of landmark legislation Monday to extend California’s cap-and-trade program.

Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry Supports Passage of Cap-and-Trade Extension to Fight Climate Change and Protect Agricultural Communities Statewide

Sacramento, CA – Today, Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters) voted in strong support of landmark legislation to extend the state’s cap-and-trade program. The package includes AB 398 by Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D-Coachella), AB 617 by Assemblymember Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens), and ACA 1 by Assembly Republican Leader Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley). Together, these bills will ensure that California continues to meet its ambitious climate change goals through extending and enhancing the cap-and-trade program, monitoring and reducing air pollution in our most vulnerable communities, and holding the Legislature accountable for its management and spending of Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund revenue.

“When I came to the Capitol, I knew the most important vote I would take this year would be on cap-and-trade. This program is a global model that shows how we can strike a balance between aggressive climate change goals and protecting and strengthening our economy,” said Aguiar-Curry. “For months I fought to bring the agricultural community and food processing industry to the table as participants in the discussion. I’m proud to say that we negotiated a cap-and-trade deal that strikes this balance. It holds all regulated industries accountable to reduce emissions, while also ensuring our agricultural industries get the support they need to make those reductions.”

$2 million for Clear Lake water quality improvement included in state budget

The state’s new $125 billion budget contains a fresh glimmer of hope for restoration efforts at Clear Lake, which suffers from mercury contamination and algae growth that perennially afflicts Lake County’s primary tourist destination.

The budget, signed by the governor late last month, includes $2 million in a separate piece of legislation, which, if approved, would create a “blue ribbon” committee to bring together a coalition of scientists, elected officials, tribal members, environmentalists and others to study the ancient lake’s problems and map out solutions.

The first provision provides $800,000 in critical funding for the reconstruction of the County Road 40 low water bridge that connects Yolo, Napa, and Lake counties. This bridge is vital during the fire season to ensure that emergency services have quick and ready access to northern Yolo County and the eastern mountainous regions of Lake and Napa counties.
