AB 1182: Energy Incentives

GO-Biz would be required to align state incentives with federal funds awarded

By Chris Micheli, March 22, 2023 3:45 pm

Assembly Bill 1182 by Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris (D-Los Angeles) was amended to have the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) to also pursue federal energy incentives. AB 1182 would add and repeal Article 10.5 (Section 12100.115) to Chapter 1.6 of Part 2 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code.

Section 1 of the bill would set forth four legislative findings and declarations including that federal action adopting the IRA and the IIJA represents a tremendous opportunity to leverage state incentives to win federal funds that align with the state’s climate change, water, and energy goals.

Section 2 of the bill would add Article 10.5, which would be titled “Federal Energy Incentive Alignment.” The bill would define the term “cofund.” GO-Biz would be required to align state incentives with federal funds awarded in the federal Inflation Reduction Act and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act that meet the state’s energy, water, air quality, and climate goals.

The bill would also require GO-Biz to provide reports to the Assembly and Senate Budget Committees and subcommittees. This annual report must include all awards to entities in the state from the IRA and IIJA with specified information. This article would remain in effect until January 1, 2033 and then be repealed.

  1. Oh look, it’s horseface Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris (aka Cootie) who was installed in Orange County’s 74th Assembly District–no doubt with the assistance of Democrat voter fraud? She’s an entitled Yale University graduate who claims to have been a businesswoman–but she never mentions where. She must not have been very successful in business because she’s now in Democrat politics feeding off of taxpayers and making the big money by pushing their globalist climate change and social justice schtick? She delusionally claimed in an interview that sea levels are expected to rise by up to 7 feet by the end of this century! If she’s really so worried about rising sea levels, then why hasn’t she sold her Laguna Beach home?

  2. Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris is another one of those obnoxious white Democrats in the legislature who must be getting payoffs to push the “climate change” scam? How’s paying them? Maybe the CCP? WEF globalists? Soros?
