Earlier this month, BPC’s Air Quality Committee hosted discussions with several Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) staff, who provided an overview of several ongoing rules and programs in development, including 2017 Clean Air Plan, AB 617, Regulation 13 rules, and the new Cut the Commute Program. Striving to reach an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 (relative to 1990 levels), BAAQMD will be laying out many of the specific actions to attain this goal in the next 3-5 years, with an emphasis on localized air quality improvements in tandem with AB 617 community programs, and other new regulations making their way through the pipeline. Thank you very much to BAAQMD staff for their thorough, yet concise presentations. BPC is pleased to be a collaborative partner with BAAQMD as they work towards their ambitious targets.
