Prop. 23 backers file challenge over wording

Published Wednesday, Jul. 28, 2010

Backers of a voter initiative to suspend California's landmark climate change law have filed a legal challenge to the wording of the rollback measure.

In legal papers filed Tuesday, the Yes on Proposition 23 committee alleged that the state attorney general's office used misleading and unfair descriptions in voter materials.

Proponents of the climate change law, or AB 32, said the court filing is another smoke screen from a group backed by out-of-state oil interests who will profit from a rollback.

AB 32 aims to reduce carbon emissions by 15 percent from today's levels by 2010.

The rollback initiative calls for a suspension of the law until the statewide unemployment rate drops to 5.5 percent for four consecutive quarters.

The committee's court filings alleged that voter material assembled by the attorney general's office falsely implies that Proposition 23 suspends all or many of the state's air pollution control laws and would require "abandonment" of greenhouse gas reduction programs.
