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.
