CJAC: Civil Justice Association of California

Senate Bill 722

The Civil Justice Association of California opposes Senate Bill 722, which is unnecessary and will invite unjustified litigation in the effort to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The bill appears intended to promote fair advertising of the sale of voluntary GHG offsets.

The Civil Justice Association of California supports fair advertisements. California Business and Professions Code Section 17500 and Section 17200 already allow individuals who have suffered injury in fact or lost money or property to sue if sold a fraudulent greenhouse gas offset.

Kim Stone, CJAC's Vice President-Legislation, testified in opposition to the bill in front of the Assembly Natural Resources Committee.
