The SCAQMD and BP entered into a settlement agreement, effective March 15, 2005. In accordance with the settlement, BP agreed to commit $3 million per year for ten years for a total commitment of $30 million to fund community benefit programs and health studies which were selected by a Public Benefits Programs Oversight Committee. The Committee initially consisted of two representatives from BP, two representatives from the SCAQMD Governing Board, and a public member. On September 4, 2015 the SCAQMD Governing Board authorized the Executive Officer to execute an agreement with BP to transfer authority of the BP/SCAQMD Public Benefits Oversight Committee to the SCAQMD Governing Board.
