LOS ANGELES -- A panel created by California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to reduce waste has proposed eliminating the California Air Resources Board.
The panel proposes to suspend 118 boards and commissions and 1,153 appointees at a cost savings of $32 billion over five years, according to the Los Angeles Times, which obtained a copy of the report before its release.
A spokeswoman for the governor declined to comment. CARB officials did not return phone calls.
