On Wednesday, June 1st, the Stationary Source Committee of BAAQMD (Bay Area Air Quality Management District) will meet to hear their staff's proposal to regulate all Bay Area refinery emissions of toxic and greenhouse gas pollutants. The Community-Worker proposal for enforceable, numerical caps on emissions is being considered in their rule-making proposal.
Another meeting of the full Board of the the Air District, with our rep Katie Rice there, will happen on June 15th. It is expected that this will be where the full Board will hear and vote on what the Stationary Source Committee votes to recommend. This will be an important meeting as well, but first let's see if we can all turn out to support the numerical cap proposal that most closely reflects the goals expressed in the resolution passed by the full Board at June of 2014.
The belief and hope is that the Community-Worker Proposal for these caps will be voted on and not again delayed or circimvented by the full Board on June 15th, or at least before their August recess.
