Oct 18 @ 8:30 am – 11:00 am
At the next Board of Directors meeting, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) will for the first time in many years consider revisions to their permitting process—Rules 2-X.   The Air District’s past record of permitting indicates a bad habit of rubber stamping “stationary source” projects that endanger community health and destabilize the climate.  Can that behavior be reformed?
