- California regulators approve $200 million VW clean-car investment
By Isha Salian - Thursday Jul 27, 2017
The money stems from a settlement last year after the company admitted to having programmed millions of diesel vehicles to cheat on federal and state emissions tests.The money will be spent on projects that include a network of 400 charging stations, public education programs and a $44 million “green city” initiative in Sacramento aimed at demonstrating the benefits of emissions-free cars.In May, the air board instructed Electrify America, the subsidiary Volkswagen set up to manage its zero-emission vehicle investment commitments, to revise its original investment plan to prioritize spending in poorer and more polluted areas of the state.“There’s no way people in these communities are going to buy electric vehicles if there’s nowhere to plug them in,” board member Dean Florez said in an interview.“Because low-income communities of color are most likely to live near busy roads and freeways, the health of these communities took the biggest hit from VW’s emissions cheating,” Joel Espino, legal counsel at Oakland nonprofit Greenlining Institute, said in a statement.The automaker recently agreed to pay the state an additional $153.8 million, according to a consent decree filed with the federal district court in San Francisco last week, bringing Volkswagen’s total settlement to California to $1.3 billion .
- SF supervisors create office to handle coming cannabis business
By Rachel Swan - Tuesday Jul 18, 2017
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday created a new “one-stop shop” to handle policies for marijuana businesses once recreational cannabis becomes legal. “We’ve had an industry that’s been on the margins of legality for a large part of its existence, and now the state is about to fully legalize adult use,” Sheehy said, noting that the new state law left many policy issues open for debate. “We have not done a good job of getting equity in the tech sector,” said Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer, who feared that the people who were most harmed by U.S. policies would be excluded from the cannabis business. The city budget included $700,000 to fund three Office of Cannabis positions — a manager, a principal analyst and a management assistant — along with overhead, website development and public outreach. Mayor Ed Lee also set aside $665,227 this year for five new Department of Public Health employees who would help oversee permitting for medical cannabis dispensaries. Separately, the board finally passed a set of comprehensive affordable housing laws that require developers of new market-rate projects to set aside a portion of their units — 18 percent for rentals and 20 percent for condominiums — for low-, moderate- and middle-income families. [...] a proposal to dilute a 2014 law mandating that companies beautify sidewalk utility boxes hit resistance at Tuesday’s meeting. The measure by Supervisor Malia Cohen would have allowed telecom and Internet service providers such as AT&T to pay fees instead of planting trees near the boxes or decorating them with murals. The owner move-in law, which had been the focus of months of debate between the moderate and progressive wings of the board, passed unanimously on a final vote.
