DATC 2023

Outreach & Teach

In 2023, CFCA is expanding our advocacy opportunities for our members to meet, educate, and build relationships with their State Senators and Assemblymembers.

Each CFCA member will have the opportunity to meet with their representatives in their district office to discuss issues currently impacting our industry in California as well as issues specific to the district in which the representative serves.

CFCA will also be hosting a hybrid Day at the Capitol (DATC), which includes a fully virtual advocacy day and a fully in-person advocacy day. The focus for Day at the Capitol will be to garner support for CFCA-sponsored bills and urge opposition to bills CFCA has taken an “Oppose” position on.

Please see the timeline for the Outreach and Teach opportunities below.

January 12 - March 12, 2023

Session Description:

Fight back against California’s (CA) misguided energy policies! CA policymakers have a virtuous goal: cut air pollution and CO2 emissions. There’s only one problem: they’re failing. Their policies are hurting both people and the environment—especially people with lower incomes. There’s a better way forward—one that helps both people and the environment. We can keep energy affordable and reliable while decreasing air pollution and CO2 emissions. We just need to reject failed policies and support better ones: Repeal the zero-emission vehicle mandates while incentivizing lower-emission vehicles. Defeat the so-called “price-gouging penalty” while lowering fuel costs for consumers and businesses. End subsidies for wind, solar, and electric vehicles, and let the best technologies win in the open marketplace. Cut foreign oil and gas imports while increasing domestic production. Extend the operation of existing nuclear power plants, and reform regulations to allow new zero-emission small-scale plants. You have a voice! Arm yourself with the facts and help reshape CA’s energy future.
