SACRAMENTO - The California Air Resources Board will hold a

Participants at the events can learn about which regulations
apply to their fleet, requirements for their equipment and the
wide variety of funding opportunities available to them. 

"The goal of the events is to offer one-on-one help with truckers
and truck owners about our diesel regulations, funding and the
latest in clean diesel technology," said ARB Executive Officer

trucking community reduce diesel pollution that seriously impacts
the lives and health of all Californians."

Diesel exhaust contains a variety of harmful gases and over 40
other known cancer-causing compounds. In 1998, California
identified diesel particulate matter as a toxic air contaminant
based on its potential to cause cancer, premature death and other
health problems.

The Air Resources Board's mission is to promote and protect
