Speaker pro Tem Mullin’s Statement on Governor Newsom’s 2020-21 Proposed Budget

 

Thursday, October 10, 2019

Sacramento –Governor Newsom has signed AB 784, exempting zero-emission transit buses from the state portion of the sales tax until January 1, 2024, in order to advance the deployment of Zero-Emission Buses (ZEBs) in California.

“California is one of the only states that charge public transit agencies sales tax,” Assemblymember Mullin pointed out. “In spite of that fact, many California transit agencies including SamTrans have begun to deploy ZEBs in an effort to reduce dangerous pollutants and emissions from the air. However, since ZEBs are considerably more expensive than their diesel-fueled alternatives, this temporary tax break will help these cash-strapped agencies make this transition more easily.”

Sacramento – Sea level rise is one of the most serious consequences of climate change and now that Governor Newsom has signed AB 825 by Assembly Speaker pro Tem Kevin Mullin, San Mateo County is taking a significant step forward in addressing this serious issue.

“San Mateo County has more people and property value at risk from rising sea levels than any other county in California,” Mullin stated. “It is one of the most serious consequences of climate change and I am incredibly proud that San Mateo County is taking a pro-active approach to address it.”
