Air Resources Board Approves Program to Improve Air Quality in Disadvantaged Communities
Sacramento, CA —Muscoy was selected by the California Air Resources Board as one of ten areas to have community air monitoring and emission reduction plans developed through the help of the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
The creation of the state’s Community Air Protection program is a step in the right direction, although much remains to be done, including the implementation of more stringent reduction measures.
“Our communities cannot continue to face the brunt of health burdens, as polluters continue to escape with minimal consequences,” said CCAEJ Executive Director Allen Hernandez. “Air regulators must understand that nothing short of zero emissions will clean up our community’s air. It will take stern and decisive leadership from local and state air regulators to demand polluters to clean up their act.”
