Dignity Health, Gap and others throw support behind sweeping climate change bill
Sacramento Business Journal

Twenty-four companies doing business in California including Dignity Health and Gap Inc. announced support Thursday for a climate change agenda promoted by Gov. Jerry Brown and being pushed through the Legislature by Senate leader Kevin de León.

It’s unclear whether newfound support from a diverse range of private companies would influence the debate on legislation that is opposed by several state business groups including the California Chamber of Commerce. The firms range from a small movie theater in Monte Rio to California heavyweights like Autodesk Inc., Levi Strauss & Co. and The North Face.
