Bill Jones on Environment


Federal environmental grants as block grant to States

California has the nation's best environmental programs but the state is hurt by too many conflicting federal agencies and their rules. Supports the ban on drilling oil off the California coast and the federal government should buy out the remaining leases, as it has done in Florida. Also, federal environmental grants should be combined into a block grant to the State, to be spent on the critical environmental needs as identified by Californians.
