      Tomorrow is the big day,
      Assemblyman Marco Antonio Firebaugh (D) will have his bill (AB1390)
      opened to the assembly floor for a vote. This is may be our last chance
      to deal with this in the assembly.


      AB1390 sets a dangerous precedent by allowing auto manufacturers
      to buy out of environmental regulations, namely the ZEV program. As
      you know, the technology driving ZEV program requires major OEMs to
      build thousands of zero emission (battery and fuel cell) vehicles, tens
      of thousands of gas/electric hybrids and hundreds of thousands of
      ultra clean normal gasoline cars. AB1390 is supported by
      the democratic latino caucus because it diverts money to local air
      quality problems in disproportionately effected (lower income/minority)
      areas. Of course the republicans support it because it makes life
      easier for big business. While I support Assemblyman Firebaugh's
      goal of cleaning up local air pollution in disproportionately effected
      areas, I
      cannot endorse the scrapping of one critical program to support another.
      There is no time left for snail-mail letters so please take some time
      in the morning to call, fax or if all else fails, E-mail your assembly person
      and tell them why they should oppose AB1390. In particular here are some
      prominent latino caucus members we need to target. If you live in any of
      the following areas it is especially important that you make your voice heard!
