BAEHC urges strong EJ protections for clean air rules

On September 15, 2010, the BAAQMD Board of Directors is scheduled to adopt its 2010 Clean Air Plan (CAP), which sets the air quality agency's regulatory priorities for 2010-2010.  BAEHC recently proposed our own priority recommendations for implementing the CAP, urging BAAQMD to include more ambitious pollution reduction goals and stronger measures to protect health in overburdened communities.  In April 2010, BAEHC submitted public comments on the draft CAP.  BAEHC will continue to press BAAQMD to prioritize reducing pollution in overburdened communities as it implements the CAP.
