gmbond -- REVISED - ARB Prop 1B Goods Movement Incentives Workshops Posted: 10 Oct 2012 10:31:47
ARB staff will hold public workshops on November 6, 2012 in Sacramento, November 7 in Long Beach, and November 8 in Fresno, to discuss staff’s proposed updates to the Prop 1B: Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program Guidelines. The Guidelines define the responsibilities of ARB, local agencies, and equipment owners, and the technical specifications and funding amounts for eligible projects to reduce freight emissions. The Sacramento workshop will also be webcast. The workshop notice is available at http://www.arb.ca.gov/gmbond. A draft concept paper describing the proposed updates will be available soon. Background: The Prop 1B Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program is a partnership between the State Air Resources Board (ARB) and local agencies (like air districts, ports, and transportation agencies) to quickly reduce air pollution emissions and health risk from freight movement along California’s trade corridors. ARB provides funding to eligible agencies; those agencies then offer financial incentives to owners of equipment used in freight movement to upgrade to cleaner technologies.
