Background 
The California Cap-and-Trade Regulation (Regulation) was formally
adopted by the Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) in 2011.  In
response to continued Board direction and further discussions
with stakeholders, staff began a public process to propose a new
Rice Cultivation Projects Compliance Offset Protocol and updates
to existing Compliance Offset Protocols for Board consideration
in 2014.  Documents that will be made publicly available prior to
the workshop will provide a discussion of the new Rice
Cultivation Projects Compliance Offset Protocol.   Updates to
existing Compliance Offset Protocols will be released at a later
date with additional time allowed for public comment.  These
documents will provide the public with the opportunity to discuss
staffís draft language for the new and updated Compliance Offset
Protocols prior to staff formally submitting a Notice of Proposed
Regulatory Action.  The public will have additional opportunities
to comment on these protocols during the 45-day public comment
period and Board hearing.
