SB 999: Reforming the San Joaquin Valley’s air district

CLCV Supported
Passed Senate 24-15 (5/31/05)
Failed Assembly 38-41 (8/31/06)

For years, the San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District has failed to act aggressively to curb the valley’s ever-worsening air pollution. SB 999 (Machado) would revise and expand the membership of the board by ensuring that the valley’s three largest cities—Fresno, Bakersfield, and Stockton—are represented and by adding two new members, a physician and a scientist or engineer, both with expertise in air pollution.
