AB 985 – Assembly Floor
Central Valley Air Pollution Credit Reform
AB 985 would have brought much-needed transparency to the San Joaquin Valley Air District with a long-overdue review of their Emissions Reduction Credit system. AB 985 would have directed the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to review the broken pollution credit system that has led to increased pollution in the region, resulting in the San Joaquin Valley continuing to have some of the worst air quality in the nation. By requiring the state air board to review this defunct program, we would have taken the first needed step in reforms that will lead to true pollution reduction for communities who need it most.
