Author: SDCTA Staff
Media Source: Position Paper

SDCTA OPPOSES a City Council vote on implementing CCA or alternatives until the City conducts comparative cost-benefit analyses of the options for achieving the goals set out in its Climate Action Plan per the requirements of its Climate Action Plan. Conducting those analyses requires at least knowledge of the PCIA rate, which has not yet been determined. In order for the Association to support any potential climate action-related implementation strategy, the strategy should be evaluated through our official endorsement process and demonstrate a commitment to its underlying principles, adopted by the Association on July 24, 2017.

Additionally, AB 1250 limits the ability of county officials to perform their duties and make judgments about how to best provide important services to their communities. This measure would greatly affect San Diego County, which relies heavily on contracting for services such as behavioral health.
