Brown considers using his campaign war chest in 2016 initiative battles
Gov. Jerry Brown said he is preparing to wade into next year’s crowded field of ballot battles, which could include proposing a new effort on climate change or fighting off an initiative to restrict infrastructure projects.
“There are some things we’re looking at,” he said. “I’m not ready to talk about them yet.”
Brown has, between two accounts, about $24 million in campaign cash left over from last year’s gubernatorial contest, a sizable chunk even by California standards.
Brown declined to detail any next steps on environmental issues in an interview while riding to the airport here Thursday morning. He’s returning to California after five days at the United Nations summit on climate change.
The governor said he has a “renewed determination to ensure our climate programs are ... moving in the right direction.”
