EDF Statement from President Fred Krupp

Keith Gaby, (202) 572-3336,

 “Commissioner Liane Randolph is an excellent choice to lead CARB. Randolph will help California meet the urgent need to lead on air quality, climate ambition and environmental justice. Her deep expertise and reputation of effective collaboration will be a huge asset in helping bring leaders across government, the private sector and the environmental community together to fight for clean air for all and a fully decarbonized California economy.”

“We are looking forward to working with Commissioner Randolph and the CARB board and staff to support critical efforts to protect and enhance the health and well-being of all Californians, and to achieve significant equity and environmental justice progress. She will be a strong partner to the governor and the Biden-Harris administration in helping revitalize U.S. action and global leadership on climate.”
