Background On December 11, 2008, the Board approved for adoption the Truck and Bus Regulation and the Tractor-Trailer Greenhouse Gas Regulation to control emissions from nearly all existing diesel powered heavy-duty trucks and buses operating in California. These regulations became effective under California law in January 2010. Reducing emissions from in-use trucks and buses is necessary to meet federally imposed clean air standards and to reduce the adverse health effects from truck and bus pollution. The Truck and Bus Regulation applies to diesel fueled trucks and buses with a gross vehicle weight rating greater than 14,000 pounds that are privately owned, federally owned, and to publicly and privately owned school buses. Local and state government owned diesel fueled trucks and buses are already subject to other ARB in-use regulations. On December 17, 2010, the staff recommended amendments that would delay the initial requirement to install particulate matter (PM) retrofit filters by one year to January 1, 2012 and extended the time that vehicles would comply with PM filters installed. The amendments would also defer engine replacements for two years until January 1, 2015. Prior to 2020, replacements would be limited to 20 year old or older trucks that are not equipped with PM filters. By January 1, 2023, most vehicles would still need to have 2010 model year engines or equivalent. The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32) established requirements to achieve reductions of GHG emissions. AB 32 requires the Air Resources Board and other state agencies to adopt regulations and other requirements that would reduce statewide GHG emission levels to the equivalent of 1990 levels by 2020. The Tractor-Trailer GHG rulemaking is one of 44 early action measures identified by the Board.
