WHAT IS AB 617?

In 2017, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill 617 (C. Garcia, Chapter 136, Statutes of 2017) to develop a new community focused program to more effectively reduce exposure to air pollution and preserve public health. This bill directs the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and all local air districts, including the Imperial County Air Pollution Control District (APCD), to take measures to protect communities disproportionally impacted by air pollution. There are five central components to the new AB 617 mandate: community-level air monitoring,  a state strategy and community specific emission reduction plans, accelerated review of retrofit pollution control technologies on industrial facilities subject to Cap-and-Trade, enhanced emission reporting requirements and increased penalty provisions for polluters. This page is a portal to the the APCD's air monitoring plan, maps, community engagement and incentive programs that will help ensure that those being excessively impacted by air pollution in disadvantaged communities are protected.
