SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblymember Ian Calderon (D–Whittier) introduced Assembly Bill 1710 yesterday, which implements a comprehensive program to promote technologically advanced light-duty vehicle deployment in disadvantaged communities.
“While the state has done a good job of creating incentives to promote clean vehicle adoption in California, we must expand these incentives to our disadvantaged communities and ensure that rebate programs are within reach for low income households,” stated Assemblymember Calderon. “Increasing access to clean transportation will bring much needed environmental benefits to these communities, including reduced air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions.”
