Air Quality Regulatory Measures that May Be Adopted or Amended in 2012
State law (Health and Safety Code Section 40923) requires the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (District) to publish a list of regulatory measures scheduled for consideration during each year. These regulatory measures, or rules and regulations, are adopted in order to reduce air pollution in Santa Barbara County.
Air quality rules and regulations that may be adopted or amended during 2012 are listed below. This adoption schedule may vary as regulatory priorities change due to local, state, and federal mandates and policies. The schedule also varies with the complexity of issues confronting each rule development effort and the public comments received. Please note that even though a measure is included on this list, it may not actually be adopted or amended in 2012.
Before the adoption or amendment of any regulatory measure, the District publishes a notice in a local newspaper and holds a hearing to accept comments from affected businesses and other interested parties.
