Phil Ting is pushing the envelope of California environmental legislation; authoring AB 1745, which seeks to ban the sale of gas-powered vehicles after 2045. While the bill did not pass this year, he vows to bring it back in 2019. In our conversation, we cover Phil’s early career as a civil rights activist in the Asian community, his views on green job opportunities, and the climate priorities of the California legislature, where he currently chairs the Assembly budget committee.
