San Diego County Supervisors OK Air Pollution Standards Proposal
Excerpts from KPBS article
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors Wednesday took the first steps toward putting a plan in place to reduce toxic air pollution.
The board voted unanimously to direct the county Air Pollution Control District to study the current toxic air pollutant threshold and return with a proposed rule no later than April 2020 for possible approval.
According to the proposal sponsored by Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, the APCD will also work with industry and community partners.
Fletcher said the county has an opportunity to set a new standard, "and go further in protecting the public health of our residents."
