IRVINE (October 20, 2010) - The Board of Directors of Western Growers has voted to formally support Proposition 23, which would enact a temporary one-time suspension of California’s greenhouse gas emission reduction law, known as AB 32. That law, which requires reductions of carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, will increase the cost of electricity, gasoline, diesel fuel, natural gas and other inputs farmers depend on while having virtually no impact on global carbon emissions.
