Air Quality

Let’s protect students at school from smoke.

I see air quality as a new challenge we must face and plan for. Congresswoman Anna Eshoo recently introduced the Smoke Planning and Research Act which directs the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to study the health effects of wildfire smoke and provide grants to local governments to plan and respond to wildfire smoke by creating shelters for at-risk populations and retrofitting schools with air filters so students can safely attend schools when they reopen. I would like to see Atherton become more active in local air quality issues.
