Proposition 39 was passed in November 2012 with more than 60 percent support. It closed a corporate tax loophole that only benefited out-of-state corporations. The initiative was co-chaired by Senator Kevin de León, Tom Steyer and former U.S. Secretary of State George Schultz.

Generating more than $1 billion annually for California, the passage of Proposition 39 or the California Clean Energy Jobs Act, ensures that schools and communities benefit from energy efficiency and clean energy projects with measurable cost-savings and increased jobs. For the next five years, $500 million will go toward energy efficiency and clean energy projects, while the other $500 million goes directly to the State General Fund.
