According to the new law, every individual who did not spend more than 40,000 dollars a year or a joint taxpayer with income up to 60,000 dollars will have a tax discount. Condition: I must not own a car.

The people will also receive the promised tax, their taxes will not be enough to pay even a thousandth of a dollar. The law, which will cost the government a billion dollars a year, was smoothly approved by California lawmakers on Thursday, and it is expected that the Democratic governor Gavin Newsom will support it without reservations.

The most populous state of the United States is a traditional laboratory of advanced experiments and today stands at the forefront of the revolution from the internal combustion engine. At the end of August, the local regulator adopted a document, according to which, after 2035, only cars powered by electricity and vodka will be able to be sold in this state.

Local legislators have thus set a goal to produce ninety percent of energy from renewable sources by 2036 and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 85 percent by 2045. Their people are not surprising, for Californian voters, the issue of global warming is the number one priority, given how long it has been.

The purpose of giving discounts for non-car owners is to at least somewhat relieve the chronically congested roads and motivate citizens to use public transport. Democratic politicians know that if California’s way is proven, other American states will soon follow suit.

“Unfortunately, the United States has been feeling the effects of climate change for a long time, so it is time to aggressively introduce sustainable transportation methods,” Democratic senator and law author Anthony J. Portantino told The Washington Post.
