Julia Roberts made a public statement yesterday while at Mattell Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles in support of California’s Prop 87. Her husband Danny Moder was there to support her. Says Julia, “We’re all victims of this state’s tragically poor air quality. California has the worst air pollution in the nation.” TMZ reported the story, along with a video, that is not currently working and Perez Hilton has got some pics.
Proposition 87 is a proposal to tax oil producers in California, prohibiting them to pass the tax on to consumers. The money raised will fund alternative energy research, production incentives, and education, among other things.
