The California Air Resources Board (ARB)adopted the Bay Area's plan to deal with smog, but it first insisted that Bay Area air-quality and transportation officials find more ways to cut hydrocarbon emissions by creating stricter regulations for refineries, power plants and car traffic. Now that the state has approved the plan, it goes to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) next.
