Background:
The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, (AB 32)
calls for the Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) to convene a
global warming environmental justice advisory committee, to
advise the Board in developing the Scoping Plan, and any other
pertinent matter in implementing AB 32. The advisory committee is
comprised of representatives from communities in the State with
the most significant exposure to air pollution, including, but
not limited to, communities with minority populations or
low-income populations, or both.

The Board appointed the first Environmental Justice Advisory
Committee to advise it on the Initial Scoping Plan and other
climate change programs. To advise the Board on the First Update
to the Climate Change Scoping Plan, ARB reconvened a new
Committee on March 21, 2013. To replace members that either
changed positions and had to resign from the Committee or were
unable to serve, the Board appointed four new members on
September 25, 2015.

The Committee will advise the Board on the development of the
2030 Target Scoping Plan Update, per Governor Brown’s Executive
Order B-30-15. Committee meetings are open to the public and
include a public comment period.
