California air regulators want the state's cap-and-trade program to operate for another decade.  The Air Resources Board released new draft rules last night that would continue emissions reductions through 2030 -- a decade longer than the program is due to expire.  As Capital Public Radio's Ben Bradford reports, opponents of expanding cap-and-trade are vehemently opposing the proposed extension.
