The California Air Resources Board fined JLG Harvesting Inc., $21,500 in October 2009 for emissions violations during 2005 and 2006 at its Salinas, Calif., terminal.  An ARB investigation showed JLG Harvesting failed to properly inspect some of its diesel vehicles, as required by California law.  JLG Harvesting Inc., paid $21,500 in penalties: $16,125 went to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, for projects and research to improve California's air quality. The Peralta Community College District received $2,687.50 to fund emissions education classes conducted by participating California community colleges. The remaining $2,687.50 went to the California Pollution Control Financing Authority to fund low-interest loans for owners of off-road diesel-powered construction vehicles.
