Attorney general debate: A swipe at Jerry Brown

October 5, 2010 | 12:57 pm

Attgen-brownl9hkt2nc Steve Cooley took a swipe at Jerry Brown for promoting local control on the campaign trail.

In Tuesday's debate with Kamala Harris, he said Brown's positions were "very inconsistent with his actions as attorney general."

The answer came in response to a question about Brown's pursuit of claims against local governments for not enforcing the state's greenhouse-gas law, AB 32.

Both Cooley and Harris said they would review those cases before deciding whether to pursue cases against locals who were not complying with state law.

Live coverage of the entire debate is available here.
