If certain air quality standards are not met by July 1, 2023, the appointments of all California Air Resources Board members will terminate, twelve new members will be appointed by local air pollution control district boards, and all of the Board’s funds and revenues will be reallocated to local air pollution control districts for programs designed to achieve immediate air quality improvements. Eliminates two nonvoting Board member positions; requires twelve voting members be appointed by local air pollution control districts, rather than by the Governor. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: If certain air quality standards are not met, eliminates all state funding for CARB – $1.4 billion currently – for an unknown period of time; shifts some or all of this funding to local air districts. Potential loss of billions of federal dollars annually for state and local transportation projects for an unknown period of time.
REPLACES ALL MEMBERS OF CALIFORNIA AIR RESOURCES BOARD AND REALLOCATES ITS FUNDING IF CERTAIN AIR QUALITY STANDARDS ARE NOT MET. INITIATIVE STATUTE. California Initiative 1889 (2020).
