arbcombo -- Public Availability of (1) Responses to Comments on the Supplement to the AB 32 Scoping Plan FED, and (2) Final Supplement to the FED Posted: 19 Aug 2011 17:13:48
The California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) has posted on its website the following two documents that will be considered at the Boardís August 24, 2011 public hearing: (1) Responses to Comments on the Supplement to the AB 32 Scoping Plan Functional Equivalent Document, and (2) Final Supplement to the AB 32 Scoping Plan Functional Equivalent Document (Final Supplement). The Final Supplement provides an expanded description and environmental analysis of the five alternatives analyzed in the 2008 AB 32 Scoping Plan Functional Equivalent Document: (1) a no project alternative; (2) an alternative based on cap-and-trade; (3) an alternative based on source-specific regulatory requirements with no cap-and-trade component; (4) an alternative based on a carbon fee or tax; and (5) an alternative program based on a variation of proposed strategies. The Final Supplement was released in draft form on June 13, 2011 for a 45-day public review and comment period that concluded on July 28, 2011. A total of 109 written comments were received during the public comment period, and several oral comments were also received at a public workshop that was held on July 8, 2011. Written responses to these comments have been prepared by ARB staff and are included in the Responses to Comments on the Supplement to the AB 32 Scoping Plan Functional Equivalent Document (Responses to Comments). The Final Supplement, the written comments received by ARB, and the Responses to Comments are available to view or download on ARBís website at http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/scopingplan/scopingplan.htm. A Board hearing is scheduled for August 24, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. at the Byron Sher Auditorium, Second Floor, 1001 I Street, Sacramento, California. At the hearing, the Board will consider for approval the Final Supplement, along with Responses to Comments and the AB 32 Scoping Plan Functional Equivalent Document. 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. The documents described above support the implementation of AB 32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. Under AB 32, ARB has developed numerous measures supported by regulations to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and help clean the air, protect the environment and drive innovative new solutions to clean energy.
