The California Air Resources Board (ARB) is seeking nominations
from environmental justice organizations and community groups for
representatives to serve on the Environmental Justice Advisory

Pursuant to Assembly Bill 32 (Chapter 488, Statutes of 2006), ARB
convened the Environmental Justice Advisory Committee (EJAC or
Committee) in 2007 to advise it on the development of
California’s Climate Change Scoping Plan
and other matters pertinent to the implementation of AB 32. 

ARB is required to develop an updated Scoping Plan to bring to
the Board by December 2013. The plan will focus on strategies to
reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve additional
co-benefits both in the near-term and beyond 2020, including in
disadvantaged communities. Sectors of focus will include
transportation, fuels, and infrastructure; energy generation,
transmission, and efficiency; waste; water; and agriculture. It
will also focus on how best to align California’s greenhouse gas
emission reduction strategies with other state policy priorities
like air quality, goods movement, sustainable communities, and
clean energy. 

ARB is reconvening the EJAC to advise on the development of the
updated Scoping Plan. Staff expects the EJAC to meet twice during
the spring and summer of 2013 to discuss the Scoping Plan prior
to Board consideration of the Plan. Nominations from
environmental justice organizations and community groups for
membership on the EJAC are being solicited for representatives

community groups.”
