Martin Mattes Quoted In Law360 On Carbon-Neutral Executive Order In California

The article discusses Governor Jerry Brown’s executive order calling for the state to be carbon-neutral by 2045. Governor Brown issued this executive order on the same day he signed SB100—which calls for California to have 100 percent zero-carbon electricity by 2045 as well.
