Other relevant and significant information.

De León and seven other California state officials attended the United Nations 22nd Conference in Morocco on global warming. To reassure officials of other governments that the state remains committed to the climate change agreement reached in Paris, he released a statement at the conference. "California leaders are committed to protecting and building upon our global leadership role in the fight against climate change. It would be extremely irresponsible and short-sighted to do otherwise." (Patrick McGreevy, "State Senate leader Kevin de León heads to Morocco for conference on climate change."
