The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is charged with regulating air quality in the Bay Area. The California Legislature created the Air District in 1955 as the first regional air pollution control agency in the country. The Air District is tasked with regulating stationary sources of air pollution in the nine counties that surround San Francisco Bay: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, southwestern Solano, and southern Sonoma counties. It is governed by a 24-member Board of Directors composed of locally elected officials from each of the nine Bay Area counties. As the Air District’s chief legal officer, Mr. Brian Bunger is the principal manager for the legal affairs of the agency, including litigation, legal aspects of enforcement actions pursued by the Air District, contracts review and negotiations, providing counseling on regulatory and administrative law issues, and acting as Counsel to the Air District’s Executive Officer, Board of Directors, and Advisory Council. Mr. Bunger discussed the latest challenges and priorities for the Air District.
