As Amends the Law Today

 The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
(a) Petroleum fuels are a leading cause of in-state greenhouse gas emissions.
(b) California is vulnerable to oil market shocks given the small number of in-state oil refineries.
(c) It is the policy of the state to address climate goals and the economic security of California drivers through support of low-carbon fuel production in a manner that boosts fuel supply and diversity and provides energy security.

SEC. 2.

 Section 39719.6 is added to the Health and Safety Code, to read:

 The California Low-Carbon Fuels Incentive Program is hereby created, to be administered by the state board in conjunction with the State Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission. The program, from moneys appropriated from the fund for purposes of the program, shall provide incentives for the in-state production of low-carbon transportation fuels from new and existing facilities using sustainable feedstock. Priority shall be given to projects providing direct benefits to disadvantaged communities pursuant to the requirements of Sections 39711 and 39713.
