New Air Resources Board Chair
|After the Senate torpedoed the governor's last pick (Cindy Tuck) to head up the Air Resources Board, Gov. Schwarzenegger has tapped Robert Sawyer, an emeritus professor at UC Berekeley.|
Here's what the gov had to say:
"Dr. Sawyer is an exceptionally accomplished scientist, teacher and environmental policy expert who has devoted his career to using science and technology to improve air quality not only in California, but across our country and the world," said Governor Schwarzenegger. "His expertise in tackling tough pollution control issues will be fundamental to ensuring the legacy of the Air Resources Board in creating a clean and healthy future for California continues."
