How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Clean Air Act Advisory Committee (CAAAC) provides advice and recommendations to EPA on important policy issues related to air quality management in the United States. The CAAAC 50th Anniversary workgroup developed the CAA 50th Anniversary Report in FY22, which yielded 141 recommendations for future implementation of the CAA for EPA's consideration. The MSTRS subcommittee developed a final Future Mobility Report and the MOVES Model Review workgroup developed the Air Emissions Modeling report in FY22.
How is membership balanced?*The CAAAC is composed of senior representatives from a diverse group of the federal government, state, tribal and local government, academic institutions, environmental and public interest groups, industries, and trade associations. This membership provides a balance between public and private segments of society affected by, and interested in, the implementation of the Clean Air Act. The Mobile Sources Technical Review Subcommittee (MSTRS) has representation from each of these stakeholder groups as well.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The CAAAC (Full Committee) meets approximately two to three times each year to advise on air issues related to the implementation of the Clean Air Act. The Mobile Sources Technical Review Subcommittee (MSTRS) meets twice annually. Workgroups have more frequent meetings to accomplish their charges.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The CAAAC provides consensus advice and counsel to the Agency on the complex topics of effective air quality implementation and management, while also augmenting stakeholder input that the agency receives in other forums.
Why close or partially close meetings?No meetings were closed or partially closed.

CAAAC had virtual meetings October, 18, 2021, December 15, 2021, February 8, 2022, and June 15, 2022 from 1-4pm. CAAAC also had a Hybrid (in-person and virtual) meeting on September 13-14. 2022.
