Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 1383 (Lara) on Monday, which establishes the nation's toughest restrictions on short-lived climate pollutants including black carbon, fluorinated gases and methane. Specifically, the law will require the California Air Resources Board to approve and implement a comprehensive strategy to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants to achieve a reduction in methane emissions by 40%, hydrofluorocarbon gas emissions by 40% and black carbon emissions by 50% below 2013 levels by 2030.
