Database's creation is a result of President Trump's decision to leave the Paris Accord.

In an interview with Politico, Schwarzenegger discusses the new website, which is a joint effort between the Schwarzenegger Institute at the University of South Carolina and the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators.

In an interview with Politico, Schwarzenegger called it a direct challenge to Trump.

"There’s no reason why we shouldn’t have a digital legislative handbook — and make it available to people who wanted to create environmental action now — because of the situation with Trump," Schwarzenegger said Thursday.

"With his decision on the Paris agreement, it is even more so important to make this information available because it shows the kinds of wonderful things states can do without waiting for the federal government."

 According to Schwarzenegger, his new website will empower state legislators to go further than the Trump administration is willing to go on environmental issues.

"The message to legislators with the project is now 'you have the power to do it yourselves,'" he told Politico. "The reality is each state now goes to work and passes great legislation that helps them ... make great decisions."
