Central Valley native, Dean Florez was appointed to the California Air Resources Board by State Senate President Kevin de Leon (D-L.A.) on Wednesday.
Senate leader de Leon called Florez a distinguished addition to CARB who has experience supporting children with asthma and having the resolve to oppose the oil lobby. He also noted, Florez wrote the landmark law to eliminate the 63-year-old agriculture exemption from clean air laws and created the program to remove diesel school busses off the road that can impact asthma.
