Obama Selects Mayor Johnson for Environmental Task Force
Posted November 1st, 2013 @ 2:53pm by KFBK News - Joe Michaels

Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson has been selected as a charter member of President Barack Obama's Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience.

The president established the task force today as part of his Climate Action Plan to cut carbon pollution and prepare communities for the impacts of climate change.

Mayor Johnson was chosen because of his efforts to strengthen the region's levees and his work to expand Sacramento's "green" economy -- including financing building retrofits that reduce carbon pollution.
