Welcome to 2018, which the Coalition for Clean Air’s Bill Magavern has dubbed “The Year of the Truck.” Magavern, a veteran environmental advocate, joins us for our first Capitol Weekly Podcast of 2018. There’s new legislation out there (SB 210 from state Sen. Connie Leyva) introducing clean air rules for big trucks, which — surprise! —  do not have to undergo the same types of smog checks that have been required for passenger vehicles for many years. This and other proposals put California at odds with the Trump administration, which is rolling back Obama-era clean air regulations. Bill joins Capitol Weekly’s John  Howard and Tim Foster to discuss what’s at stake in air-quality regulations during the coming year.
