California Air Quality and Climate Legislation

CARB’s Office of Legislative Affairs serves as the principal resource on legislative issues relative to air quality and climate change for the California Environmental Protection Agency and the Governor’s Office.  CARB’s Office of Legislative Affairs provides technical expertise relating to pending legislation and serves as a resource to the Legislature and legislative staff.
