Governor Newsom has released his budget proposal for the remainder of FY 2021 and the next fiscal year, which begins July 1. The Governor has proposed increased funding for wildfire mitigation, including funding for the use of forest waste, and for heavy duty vehicles. The proposed budget also includes funding for Healthy Soils, agricultural engine replacement, restoration of natural lands, and a Climate Catalyst Fund to provide low cost financing for clean energy development and other purposes. Unfortunately, the proposed budget does not include funding for organic waste diversion or dairy digesters.
