From Founder to Flim-flam Artist
The South Coast Air Quality Management District started a program called REgional CLean Air Incentives Market (RECLAIM). In fact, one of our own, Anne Stoltz helped design and start the somewhat successful program.

But back in 1990, she was riding the crest of the wave.
