omb -- Revised Schedule: Update to the AB 32 Scoping Plan Posted: 22 Nov 2013 12:41:38
Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) staff has revised the schedule for the Proposed Update to the AB 32 Scoping Plan (Proposed Update). The purpose of the schedule revision is to provide adequate time for staff to review, consider and incorporate stakeholder comments. ARB anticipates releasing the Proposed Update and Environmental Assessment in late January followed by a February Board meeting that will include additional opportunities for stakeholder feedback and public comment. In late spring 2014, ARB will hold a Board Hearing to consider the Final Scoping Plan Update and Environmental Assessment. To view the revised schedule, please visit the AB 32 Scoping Plan website at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/scopingplan/scopingplan.htm What is the Update to AB 32 Scoping Plan? As required by AB 32, the initial Scoping Plan was developed in 2008. This Plan must be updated every five years. The Update to the Scoping Plan (Update) builds upon the initial Scoping Plan with new strategies and recommendations. The Update will define ARBís climate change priorities for the next five years and lay the groundwork to start the transition to achieve Californiaís post-2020 climate goals. It will highlight Californiaís progress toward meeting the near-term 2020 GHG emission reduction goals defined in the initial Scoping Plan and will evaluate how to align the State's longer-term GHG reduction strategies with other State policy priorities, for water, waste, natural resources, agriculture, clean energy, transportation and land use.
