California, lawmaker's new bill: 100% clean energy.
ALM SPRINGS, Calif. — Kevin de León has promised to lead the resistance to President Trump. A new bill could make good on that promise.
The California Senate leader has introduced legislation that would require the Golden State to get 100% of its electricity from climate-friendly energy sources by 2045. That's a big step up from the state's current renewable energy mandate, 50% by 2030 — a target that's only been on the books for a year and a half, and that California is still a long way from meeting.
