arbcombo -- ARB Workshop - Prop 1B Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program Posted: 19 Sep 2007 13:44:24
The Air Resources Board (ARB) staff invites you to participate in kick-off workshops being held around the State to discuss development of the Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program (Program). This new $1 billion incentive program is a partnership between 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 is scheduled to adopt Program Guidelines in December 2007 and then allocate the first $250 million in bond monies to local agencies in early 2008. Local agencies will provide financial incentives to owners of equipment used in freight movement to upgrade to cleaner technologies. Our workshop schedule is as follows: October 1, 2007 - Long Beach October 3, 2007 - San Diego October 4, 2007 - Oakland October 10, 2007 – Fresno (with video links to Modesto and Bakersfield) October 11, 2007 - Sacramento Please visit the Program website at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/gmbond for workshop details and to access a document entitled “Staff Draft Concepts for Implementation.” This concept paper describes our initial thinking on the Program to stimulate and focus public discussion. We also encourage you to visit the website and sign up for the email listserve (gmbond) to receive notices of meetings and document availability.
