Workshops Will Help Define Which Communities Get Cap-and-Trade Funds

State law requires a certain portion of California's cap-and-trade money go to communities that have traditionally been overlooked when it comes to public investment. Public workshops this week and next will continue exploring the question of how the state should define "disadvantaged communities" as well as how to assess benefits to those communities.
