Some good insight into the Air Resources Board

By Joshua P. Thompson Senior Attorney

Author: Joshua Thompson

Leslie Eastman has a two-part series (Part 1, Part 2) on the California Air Resources Board (CARB) that is worth a read.  Part 1 discusses how CARB regulations, recently enacted diesel regulations in particular, hurt California business.  Part 2 is centered on how CARB regulations fail to address the "real problems."  Part 2 is especially interesting, because it discusses PLF's lawsuit against CARB at length. 

"Some businessmen are fighting back. Norman “Skip” Brown, President of Delta Construction Company for the past 44 years, is taking CARB to court. The Pacific Legal Foundation is representing Brown and eight other California business owners in a lawsuit that aims to ensure accountability in the regulatory process and challenges the appointment process that seemingly empanels CARB regulators for life terms."

Ms. Eastman also has some great suggestions for Californians who want to fight back.  Though all are good suggestions, I especially like number 2: "Support the Pacific Legal Foundation so they can aggressively and successfully conclude the case on behalf of the plaintiffs."

Thank you for your support, Ms. Eastman.  We will continue to fight!
