AB 1288:

Environmental Justice Representation on Air Resources Board

Author: Assembly Speaker Emeritus Toni Atkins

AB 1288 will expand the California Air Resources Board (ARB) by adding two seats for people who work with low-income communities and communities of color, with the goal of adding an environmental justice perspective. The actions of the ARB impact the environment, health, and well-being of all Californians; their actions are particularly significant for low-income communities and communities of color, who are disproportionately exposed to polluted air.
