Public Hearing to Consider the AB 32 Scoping Plan and the Final Supplement to the AB 32 Scoping Plan Functional Equivalent Document

Staff will update the Board on AB 32 climate change program activities and the AB 32 Scoping Plan, and will present for the Board's consideration the Final Supplement to the AB 32 Scoping Plan Functional Equivalent Document (Final Supplement).  The Final Supplement, which was released in draft form for public comment on June 13, 2011, provides an expanded description and environmental analysis of the five alternatives analyzed in the 2008 AB 32 Scoping Plan Functional Equivalent Document.  Written responses to comments received on the draft Supplement have been prepared by ARB staff and will be made publicly available prior to the Board meeting on ARB's website at http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/scopingplan/scopingplan.htm

At the hearing, the Board will consider for approval the Final Supplement, along with the AB 32 Scoping Plan Functional Equivalent Document, and the written responses to comments prepared by ARB staff.  The Board will also make a decision on whether to approve the AB 32 Scoping Plan, as proposed by staff, or to instead direct staff to pursue a different alternative.
