Kevin de León
Former California State Senator
In 2019, California Senate President Pro Tempore Emeritus Kevin de León was named a Distinguished Senior Fellow for Climate, Environmental Justice and Health at the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy. During his twelve-year tenure in the Legislature, de León authored some of the nation’s most far reaching climate and environmental justice policies. De León will lead this campaign to fight childhood asthma caused by tailpipe emissions and pollution. Building on the success of SB 100, de León will bring together elected officials, regional transit operators, union officials, electric bus and truck manufacturers, and others to find actionable solutions that reduce tailpipe emissions and the resulting childhood asthma.
