AB 197

(Garcia) Floor: 23-13-3


co-authors: Gomez, Rendon


Studies have found that certain areas of California have the deadliest air quality in the United States. AB197 provides more assistance for poor, frontline communities that live in this pollution by creating a legislative committee to help meet California’s climate change policies and goals. The committee gains more authority over the California Air Resources Board (CARB), whose primary goal is “to provide safe, clean air to all Californians”, to ensure that emissions are reduced on a state and local level.
