Hello, my name is Daisy Santiago, and I’m a college student and volunteer with the Sierra Club from the Inland Empire, which ranks as the worst air quality in the nation. I'm a resident of Perris, California, which was once a small rural town and is NOW an area used to house thousands of warehouses that expand every year... 

 

I’m here today because my city, like others, is being taken over by drayage trucks that pollute and drive in our neighborhoods, making these cities sacrifice zones. These emissions contribute to the horrible air quality in surrounding areas that disproportionately affect the health of low-income racial and ethnic minority communities. 

 

CARB needs to create more ambitious plans to stop the environmental injustices ongoing in our state and prevent the worst impacts of climate catastrophe

 

IN THE CARB Scoping plan, I am asking the board to transition to 100% zero-emission vehicles by 2035.

 We also desperately need a complete phaseout of fossil fuels by 2045. 

 

Again, the California Air Resources Board can make decisions that drastically impact our quality of life. We all deserve the right to have clean air and a healthy life. 

 

Thank you for your time !!
