New Campaign Launches To Get A Million Electric Vehicles On California Roads In Ten Years

State Senator Kevin de Leon joined environmentalists and justice groups at the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center Thursday morning to announce the launch of a new campaign get get a million electric vehicles on the roads in California in ten years. The coalition is urging Governor Brown to use current polluter fees on oil companies to expand incentive programs for electric vehicles. They're also calling for disadvantaged communities that have paid a price in their health to get extra benefits from an electric vehicle rollout. Pacifica's Dan Fritz reports from Los Angeles.
