June 12, 13, 2006 - Air Quality Advisory Committee Meeting

The Air Quality Advisory Committee (AQAC) held a public meeting on June 12-13, 2006, to review the draft Staff Report and Technical Support Document and to consider the staff recommendations for revising the California ambient air quality standard for nitrogen dioxide. The meeting was attended by the public, private industry, and government officials.
Staff from ARB and OEHHA summarized the draft staff report entitled "Review of the California Ambient Air Quality Standard for Nitrogen Dioxide," which was released for public review April 14, 2006. As part of its review, the AQAC heard oral staff presentations on the standard review and heard comments from the public. The Committee provided staff with comments and has identified sections of the draft reports for revision. Staff of the ARB and OEHHA are revising the report to address the comments of the AQAC and the public.
