OAKLAND – California Attorney General Rob Bonta and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) secured a decision from the San Diego County Superior Court overturning the Port of Los Angeles’ approval of the revised China Shipping Terminal project and certification of its Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (EIR).
“Communities around the Port of Los Angeles are already suffering from negative health impacts associated with chronic exposure to air pollution,” said Attorney General Rob Bonta. “This decision invalidating the Port’s flawed environmental analysis for the China Shipping Terminal project is an important victory and a critical step toward accountability. The Port must do all it can to lessen the impact of this project on the surrounding communities.”
“This decision is victory for the port-adjacent communities in Los Angeles,” said CARB Chair Liane Randolph. “The Port of Los Angeles must finally require China Shipping to set in place the required measures they have been flouting, and take steps to reduce the air pollution they produce that is harming the residents of multiple AB 617 communities.”
