Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Legislation to abolish the California Air Resources Board has been killed by a legislative committee.

The proposal by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Twin Peaks, died Monday in the Assembly's Natural Resources Committee on a party-line vote, with Democrats opposed to the measure.

Assembly Bill 1332 would have transferred the Air Resources Board's duties, powers and jurisdiction to the state Environmental Protection Agency.

The Air Resources Board is appointed by the governor pending confirmation by the state Senate. It oversees regulation of greenhouse gas emissions and mobile sources of pollution, such as from vehicles, fuels and consumer products.
