February 16, 1999
Dear Sir or Madam:

On March 18, 1999, the staff of the Air Resources Board will conduct two public workshops on consumer product related activities. We invite you to attend and welcome your participation in the workshops. As noted below the workshops will begin at 9:30 a.m. in our offices in El Monte, California.

In the morning, staff will conduct a public workshop to discuss the prioritization of consumer product categories for regulation development in 1999. This regulation is needed to help us fulfill our Mid-term Measures commitment in the State Implementation Plan. Material on the prioritization of consumer product categories will be sent under separate cover. The proposed regulation is tentatively scheduled to be presented to the Board this October. We will also discuss the draft data summaries of the 1997 Consumer and Commercial Products Survey. A notice regarding the availability of the draft data summaries was sent to you under separate cover.

In the afternoon, staff will conduct a public workshop on the proposed draft voluntary California Low Emissions and Reactivity (CLEAR) regulation for aerosol coating products. Material for review and discussion will be sent under separate cover. The proposed CLEAR regulation is tentatively scheduled to be presented to the Board this September.

The workshops will be held at the following location (see enclosed map):
