Ag items of interest on Dec. 12 CA Air Board meeting in Sacramento

Nov. 14, 2019 – -There are two items of interest at the upcoming California Air Resources Board (CARB) Dec. 12 meeting  in Sacramento.  The Almond Alliance will be providing comments on both items.

  1. Consider Assembly Bill 617 Community Air Protection Program – Selection of 2019 Communities.  The CARB Board will consider selecting additional communities under the Community Air Protection Program. AB 617 requires CARB to annually consider selection of communities within which community air monitoring systems and/or community emissions reduction programs will be developed and implemented.  In September 2018, CARB’s Governing Board selected the first ten communities.
  2. CARB will consider the San Joaquin Valley Agricultural Equipment Incentive Measure. If adopted, CARB will submit the Valley Incentive Measure to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) as a revision to the California State Implementation Plan (SIP) required by the federal Clean Air Act because it is intended to reduce emissions of air pollutants in order to attain and maintain the National Ambient Air Quality Standards promulgated by U.S. EPA under the Clean Air Act.
