Background The California Cap-and-Trade Regulation (Regulation) was formally adopted by the Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) in 2011. In 2012, the Board adopted a limited set of amendments focused on implementation of the Regulation. In response to Board direction and further discussions with stakeholders, staff began a public process this spring to propose additional amendments for Board consideration in fall 2013. These workshops continue the discussion of topics that staff will consider for new amendments.
