Opposing renewable energy legislation

InfluenceMap Comment:

Opposing SB350, which includes renewable energy legislation (WSPA President Catherine Reheis-Boyd, Press Release, 2015)

Extract from Source:

“Unfortunately, it’s not a surprise or “historic” that the Senate pro Tem’s bill passed out of the Senate. What is surprising is the lack of serious discussion on this major proposal and its implications for California’s families and businesses. WSPA and a growing number of concerned industry and business organizations and consumers remain opposed to the petroleum reduction portion of the bill. We will continue to educate consumers and businesses on the enormous negative impact the legislation will have on all Californians and hope members of the Assembly are more willing to take a critical look at this legislation than did their counterparts in the Senate.”

Not supporting renewable energy legislation

InfluenceMap Comment:

Opposing clean fuels standards (WSPA President, Catherine Rheis-Boyd, Oregon Business, July 2017)

Extract from Source:

So is the low carbon fuel standard. I hate the low carbon fuel standard. A low carbon fuel standard requires you to blend in gasoline a fuel that has a lower carbon intensity. Right now it's ethanol. But as the standard ramps up, the low carbon fuel will be harder and harder to find. Because we haven’t cracked the nut. We can’t figure out what’s less carbon intensive than what we have. The minute you can’t get to the next increment — you’re going to pay more. The low carbon fuel standard is a regulation, and it’s not a regulation you can comply with.

Opposing the low carbon fuel standard in California (WSPA President Cathy Reheis-Boyd, KQED Science, March 2016)

Extract from Source:

It’s a message echoed by the president of the Western States Petroleum Association, which advocated against the low carbon fuel standard in Washington. Catherine Reheis-Boyd said she wants California lawmakers to “take a very hard look” at the low carbon fuel standard as they consider the future of climate change policies and the desire to repair the state’s roads. “All those things interplay,” Reheis-Boyd said. “That’s a big conversation. I think people across the state are willing to have it, and I think we’re at a pivotal point to have it this year.”
