Changes in upcoming diesel workshops Staff of the Air Resources Board (ARB) is making some changes to the upcoming series of 5 statewide workshops pertaining to the Regulation for In-Use Off-Road Diesel Fueled Fleets (off-road regulation), the In-Use Heavy-Duty Diesel-Fueled Vehicles Regulation (truck and bus regulation), and the In-Use On-Road Diesel-Fueled Heavy-Duty Drayage Trucks Regulation (drayage truck regulation).

The workshop in Fresno (August 26th) has been rescheduled to Friday, September 3, 2010. The time and locations of the workshop, including videoconferencing with Bakersfield and Modesto, remains unchanged.

Workshop dates:
El Monte - Tuesday, August 31, 2010
San Diego - Wednesday, September 1, 2010
Fresno - Friday, September 3, 2010
Sacramento - Tuesday, September 7, 2010
Oakland - Wednesday, September 8, 2010

At all of the workshops, staff will provide an update on the changes to the emissions inventories underlying the off-road regulation, the truck and bus regulation and the drayage truck regulation as originally planned. Staff will also discuss a newly released report entitled: "Estimate of premature deaths associated with fine particle pollution (PM2.5) in California based on U.S. EPA's methods." However, ARB staff needs additional time to evaluate and explore appropriate regulatory proposals and consider their economic impact on affected stakeholders, determine the effect of any changes on emissions over the next decade, and determine how to best protect public health in light of the evaluation of health impacts of fine particle pollution (PM2.5) currently underway. Because of this, we will NOT be discussing proposed regulatory changes at these workshops. However, ARB staff will schedule additional workshops regarding the modified proposals so that we may receive stakeholder feedback and comments on the proposed amendments. To accommodate this additional series of workshops, and to provide time for public comment, staff will delay proposing regulatory amendments to the Board until December 2010.

The Sacramento workshop will be webcast. You may find more information on the webcast for the Sacramento workshop at the Cal/EPA webcast homepage.

Workshops to discuss the proposed admendments to the Truck and Bus regulation
The California Air Resources Board has set the dates for workshops to discuss proposed amendments to the Truck and Bus regulation.  At the December, 2009 Board meeting, the Board determined additional flexibility could be provided for fleets adversely affected by the economy, and discussed three alternatives to provide additional flexibility.  At the workshops, staff will present proposed amendments, including the three alternatives, and other proposed modifications to the regulation.

N/A"The Effect of the Recession on Trucking Emissions"
At its December 2008 meeting, the California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) adopted the Statewide Truck and Bus Regulation. At that meeting, the Board directed ARB staff to report back to the Board in December 2009 on the impact of the current recession on heavy duty diesel vehicle activity and emissions in California. The documents to the right provide the basis for the December 9, 2009 Board presentation, "The Effect of the Recession on Trucking Emissions." These documents describe the data sources and approach taken to evaluate near term impacts of the recession, as well as the results of a sensitivity analysis assessing the implications of different economic scenarios for California truck emissions through 2014.

12/3/09Workshop on the Impact of the Economy on Emissions
Staff invites you to participate in a workshop to discuss what the impact of reduced economic activity is having on emissions from diesel-fueled trucks operating in California.  Staff will also discuss potential impact of economic recovery scenarios on future emissions. 

The workshop has been rescheduled to a new date after a previous cancellation in order to provide time for staff to analyze additional sources of information.  The workshop will provide the opportunity for stakeholders to provide comments on the staff analysis and related issues prior to the December Board meeting.
