A COMMITTMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Paul has worked tirelessly to support the restoration of damaged ecosystems, fight global warming and air pollution, and promote sustainable development for the city and state.
As a Burbank School Board member, Paul led the charge to invest in conservation and renewable energy that not only made the district greener, but took the district’s budget from red to black as a result savings from lower energy bills. With Paul’s leadership in environmental policy, the Burbank School Board proved that environmental policies are not only sound for the planet, but sound for teachers, students and entire communities.
When he was elected to the Assembly, he continued his focus on sound sustainable policies and renewable programs by allowing local sewer districts to site renewable facilities on their rights-of-way (AB 946) and accelerate adoption of renewable energy at electric utilities throughout California (AB 64).
He also worked to promote water conservation (AB 1408), groundwater recharge (AB 2013) and clearing our oceans of plastic debris that devastates the marine ecosystem (AB 258).
Paul is a tireless champion for our planet and will continue his strong advocacy for sound environmental policies for Los Angeles.
