September 11, 2018

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed into law Monday a bill that commits the state to achieving a 100 percent renewable energy power grid by 2045. The clean energy bill sponsored by state Sen. Kevin de León (D), who is challenging Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D) for her seat this fall, makes California the world's largest economy to commit to relying completely on renewable energy generated from solar, wind and water.
