Senate President Pro Tempore to make an announcement about Carbon Tax Bill
Next week Senate President Pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg will make an announcement regarding SB 1156, the proposed Carbon Tax. It is anticipated that he will announce significant alterations to his bill. Last week Sen. Steinberg canceled the committee hearing originally set for April 9, 2014. Experts have suggested a lack of support for the bill has resulted in it being effectively dead on arrival. As written the bill would have required a 2/3 super majority vote.
