    Forum Proposed Gas Tax Would Alter Climate Law Last Thursday, state Senate President Darrell Steinberg proposed a carbon tax on gas and other fuels.

Some environmental groups have taken issue with the proposal because it would pre-empt part of the state's current cap-and-trade program, which limits how much companies can pump out greenhouse gases. We discuss the tax and its implications for cap-and-trade.
