Climate Policy Endorsement

In August 2017, the San Diego County Taxpayers Association released a new process by which municipalities can solicit the evaluation and potential endorsement of policies they might pursue to reach a climate action goal. Similar to our School Bond Support Process & Criteria, this process will help SDCTA thoroughly evaluate public policy decisions meant to achieve local and regional climate, environmental, and conservation targets as part of a Climate Action Plan.

Using this process, it is the intent of SDCTA to ensure public entities provide clear evidence of cost effectiveness and demonstrate that the proposed policy decision will achieve the greatest return on investment of taxpayer dollars. Upon adoption of the climate action-related implementation policy, SDCTA will monitor the progress of each policy.
