Allegheny County Health Department Regulation Subcommittee Meeting Slated for Nov. 15



Allegheny County Health Department’s regulation subcommittee is slated to meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15 to discuss, among other things, proposed changes related to the Clean Air Fund.


Among the proposed changes is how much of that money can potentially go back into ACHD’s coffers.


Right now, county air pollution control regulations allow ACHD to request up to 5 percent of the Clean Air Fund’s year-end balance annually for operating expenses. The Air Quality Program is requesting that be changed to allow the department to request up to 25 percent of the Clean Air Fund balance with a cap of $1,250,000.


The meeting will be held in person and online and is open to the public. You can get all the details about how to join here (scroll down).


Editor’s Note: Can’t make it? No worries. GASP’s senior staff attorney is a member of the subcommittee meeting and several of our other team members will be in attendance so we will keep you posted on what happens.
