About This Project

Geographic focus: statewide

Main activity: legislative and administrative efforts, state regulatory agencies


The Air Project covers statewide regulatory and legislative air quality issues. The project works to ensure that local, state, and federal air quality programs are integrated in ways that maximize cost-effective and technologically-feasible emissions reductions, all while meeting air quality goals and improving public health.

CCEEB represents members at the California Air Resources Board, local air districts, stakeholder groups, and other agency proceedings. CCEEB also represents members at the legislature and in the Governor’s office. The Air Project is the lead for issues related to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and environmental justice.
