SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA (MPG) - On March 18, Representative Ami Bera, M.D. (CA-06) hosted Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 9 Administrator Martha Guzman for a roundtable discussion with regional stakeholders and toured Lion Electric’s all-electric truck, bus, and minibus manufacturing facility in Sacramento County.

They were joined by Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg, Sacramento County District 2 Supervisor Patrick Kennedy, Sacramento City Councilman Eric Guerra, Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (AQMD) Executive Director and Air Pollution Control Officer Alberto Ayala, and other local leaders to highlight Sacramento’s climate successes, showcase EPA investments in the Sacramento community, and discuss potential avenues for continued EPA regional support.

“From the Inflation Reduction Act to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, I am pleased to see President Biden’s Investing in America agenda at work right here in Sacramento County,” said Congressman Ami Bera. “I extend my thanks to Administrator Guzman and her team at the EPA for their continued partnership in supporting critical investments in our region’s infrastructure, including electric vehicle manufacturing, that will create job opportunities and pave the way for cleaner and greener transportation options.”

“The Sacramento region’s innovative and ambitious plans for utilizing the full range of historic federal investments supported by President Biden’s Investing in America agenda — from soil health to electric vehicle charging in disadvantaged communities — constitute a national model,” said EPA Pacific Southwest Regional Administrator Martha Guzman. “I applaud local leaders for their commitment to collaboration, and to moving the ball forward on the most difficult environmental justice and climate change challenges.”

“Thank you to Congressman Bera, and to the EPA, for supporting critical investments in air quality improvement, monitoring and infrastructure projects in neighborhoods most impacted by pollution,” said Sac Metro Air District Air Pollution Control Officer Dr. Alberto Ayala. “We are thrilled to highlight the electric, hydrogen, and biomass projects already underway in our region focused on advancing environmental justice and reducing negative climate impacts in our region. Through the Climate Pollution Reduction Grants program, made possible by the Inflation Reduction Act and the Investing in America Agenda, our region has a comprehensive plan ready to address these challenges through innovative and cutting-edge projects. We look forward to advancing our collaborative efforts and driving positive climate action in the Sacramento region for years to come.”
