Arvin oil and gas ordinance

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The City of Arvin is another step closer to approving regulations on petroleum work near schools and hospitals.

Arvin Planning Commission recommended the city adopt an ordinance calling for companies to cut down on traffic, noise and fumes at Tuesday night's meeting.  

The goal of the ordinance is to protect people living in those areas, according to its proponents. 

Critics argue the ordinance is based on Los Angeles area regulations and would cost the area jobs and revenue. 

City council members are expected to take on the ordinance at next week's meeting.
