Arnold To Take Matters Into His Own Hands

So no compromise was reached last week and both SB 14 and AB 64 are going to be vetoed by the governor this week. The good news (for fans of a 33% RPS) is that the Governor is expected to issue an executive order this week that mandates the new standard; the bad news is that there are serious questions about what--if anything-- this means once the Governor leaves. office.

Interestingly, the Executive Order supposedly will include nuclear power among the other traditional green energy options (solar, wind, etc...)

Full write-up is in the Los Angeles Times:
