Description
Beginning in 1954 the state air pollution control program was centered in the State Department of Public Health, Bureau of Air Sanitation, and later shared with the Motor Vehicle Pollution Control Board, created in 1959. In 1967, state air pollution control programs were combined to form a new agency, the Air Resources Board. The Records of the Air Resources Board (1953-1982) deal with subjects including land use and transportation planning; water resources; motor vehicle and power plant emission control standards, testing procedures, and devices; air quality and pollution; and related federal and state legislation.
Background

Related directly to the federal Air Quality Act of 1967, the Mulford-Carrell Act, passed in 1967 by California's legislature, combined the state air pollution control programs and formed a new agency, the Air Resources Board (ARB).
