The state of California is promising to spend an unprecedented amount of new money investing in Fresno. The state is planning tens of millions of dollars from its cap and trade funds.
Governor Jerry Brown is recommending spending $70 million of cap and trade money in Fresno.
The funds come from pollution credits and are set aside to aid the most heavily polluted and poor areas.
The City of Fresno expects to get half of all the climate change money that the state has designated for those communities.
