Statement by Mary Nichols on the death of Dr. Henry Gong

Sacramento: The Air Resources Board is deeply saddened by last
week's death of Board Member Dr. Henry Gong. Dr. Gong died
peacefully Thursday night at his home in Southern California
surrounded by family members after an unsuccessful battle with
heart problems. As one of the 11-member Air Resources Board, Dr.
Gong brought a unique, invaluable perspective to air issues as a
physician specializing in pulmonary health. He would often cite
data from his health studies in helping guide his fellow Board
members to passing protective public health regulations on
everything from tougher diesel regulations to more stringent air
quality standards. All of us who breathe California's air owes a
debt of gratitude to Dr. Gong as one of the state's true clean
air champions. We will miss him.

The Air Resources Board is a department of the California
Environmental Protection Agency. ARB's mission is to promote and
protect public health, welfare, and ecological resources through
effective reduction of air pollutants while recognizing and
considering effects on the economy. The ARB oversees all air
pollution control efforts in California to attain and maintain
health based air quality standards.
