SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to travel to Mexico this year so California can partner with that nation on ways to reduce air pollution.

The Democratic governor made a passing reference to such a trip in his State of the State address this week. He said California is the leader in addressing climate change and is building partnerships with other states and countries, including China.

In his address, he said, "We will go to Mexico next."

Brown's spokesman, Evan Westrup, said Friday the details of such a trip have not been worked out and there is no timetable for a visit.

While visiting China last year, Brown signed the first agreement between a U.S. state and China seeking greater cooperation on clean energy technology and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
