Re: “Airing Out Prop. 23

In the October 7 NCJ about Prop. 23, Rob McBeth of O&M was quoted saying his company won’t be able to afford to upgrade or replace equipment that doesn’t get much use, such as their heavy-lift forklifts, to meet the new emissions requirements. “Which means we’ll just have to stop bidding on heavy load jobs, and those’ll have to go to out-of-state bidders. We just can’t spend $100,000 on a forklift that we might use five or six times a year." The AB 32 act of 2006 that Prop 23 wants to repeal has no prohibition of his using old forklifts with dirty engines, and the extra cost of fuel for the old forklifts used several times a year or the electricity for the arc welders will be insignificant, especially if he gets more contracts to make powerplants more efficient. Vote NO on prop 23, keep the AB 32 act of 2006, which was enacted to reduce CO2 emissions and California's dependence on imported fossil fuel.
