III. Enforcement of CARB RFG Regulations

     Jim Morgester, Chief of ARB's Compliance Division, gave a
     presentation regarding ARB's approach to enforcing fuels
     regulations.  Mr. Morgester began with an overview of ARB's
     existing fuels enforcement program and how the program was
     developed.  Specifically, Mr. Morgester discussed the
     various design elements and considerations which are applied
     in the development of a reasonable and rational enforcement
     program.  A major goal in developing such a program is to
     create an even playing field for all parties involved.

     Regulation were addressed:


          o    Compliance options
          o    Protocols
          o    Phase in period
          o    Low volume service stations
          o    Sampling locations
