This survey was conducted at the Statewide Conference on Air Pollution Legislation, held in San Francisco on February 21, 1955. The results indicate that (among other things) attendees favored creating new air pollution legislation on a regional basis, with those regions based on natural atmospheric boundaries. Respondents also supported federal and state tax incentives for any installation of pollution-controlling equipment, state funded research into the causes of air pollution, and only proceeding with abatement procedures if an emission had been proved harmful through that research.
