CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 3109


Introduced by Assembly Member Ting

February 21, 2020


An act to amend Section 40930 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to air resources.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 3109, as introduced, Ting. Air districts: state ambient air quality standards.
Existing law requires air pollution control districts and air quality management districts to prepare a plan to achieve and maintain the state and federal ambient air quality standards. Existing law requires each district that has adopted that plan to, on or before January 31 of each year, report to the State Air Resources Board the number of days during the preceding calendar year that the air quality in the district violated each state ambient air quality standard for which the district’s status is nonattainment.
This bill would instead require the district to report that information to the state board on or before March 1 of each year.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 40930 of the Health and Safety Code is amended to read:

40930.
 (a)  Each district that has adopted a plan pursuant to this chapter shall, on or before January 31 March 1 of each year, prepare and submit to the state board a report identifying the number of days during the preceding calendar year that air quality in the district violated each state ambient air quality standard for which the district’s status is nonattainment.
(b)  For any pollutant for which the report indicates that the applicable state ambient air quality standard was not violated during more than three days during the calendar year at any one or more monitoring locations within the district, the district shall not adopt any new or more stringent control measure until after preparation, and approval by the district board, of an analysis that does all of the following:
(1)  Assesses the costs and benefits of all additional district, state, and federal regulatory actions that would be necessary to achieve attainment of the applicable state ambient air quality standard, taking into account only the additional costs and benefits attributable to achieving the state standard for the remaining three or fewer days each year.
(2)  Includes consideration of all of the socioeconomic impacts specified in Section 40728.5.
(3)  Identifies, if the district is an upwind district, the benefits of the additional regulatory actions in the district on the air quality in any downwind district, and identifies the costs attributable to those regulatory actions.
(c)  The state board shall review the district analyses prepared pursuant to subdivision (b) to ensure expeditious progress towards attainment in both the district that prepared the analysis and any downwind district and to ensure that any resulting action of the district that prepared the analysis does not adversely affect any downwind district.
