STATEMENT: Governor announces $9 billion in cuts to climate programs in revised budget

SACRAMENTO -- California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday released his May Revise to the 2024-25 state budget, announcing $9 billion in cuts and additional delays to state climate programs. The proposal could set back community bike and walking paths, the state’s “Clean Cars 4 All” program, electric vehicle infrastructure, and building electrification. The revision projected an overall budget deficit totaling $45 billion, with even higher projected deficits in subsequent years. The proposal would still maintain $45 billion of the state’s $54 billion climate commitment made in 2022, keeping approximately 83% of climate investments intact; although delaying it from being spent over 5 years to over 8 years.
