Canadian cap-and-trade program to link with California’s in 2014

Sacramento— Air Resources Board Chairman released the following
statement in response to today’s release of results from the
first cap-and-trade allowance auction help by the Canadian
Province of Quebec:

"We are pleased that the first cap and trade auction of Quebec
allowances was completed successfully,” Said Chairman Nichols.
“It reflects the hard work Quebec invested in developing a
rigorous cap-and-trade program, and the careful construction of
an effective auction platform.  California and Quebec can now
move forward to fully link our programs in the New Year, and work
together to show our respective nations, and the world, how
states and provinces can work together to reduce greenhouse gases
and fight climate change."

California and Quebec are scheduled to link their cap-and-trade
programs January 1, 2014. A joint auction is expected later in
the year.
