A brief summary of the Air Resources Board's actions at the December 17, 2010 hearing to consider amendments that staff had proposed to the Drayage Truck regulation. (December 17, 2010)

  • The Board considered written public comments and oral testimony at the hearing.  The Board supported some, but not all, of the amendments that staff had proposed. The Board delegated the responsibility to the ARB Executive Officer to move forward with the supported amendments to complete the regulatory process and then make a final determination of whether those amendments should be adopted.
Proposed Amendments that the Board Directed the Executive Officer to Adopt:
  • The amendment to include noncompliant trucks operating off of port and rail yard grounds that engage in dray-off activities.
  • The amendment to sunset the Drayage Truck regulation on December 31, 2016. However, staff will propose a later sunset date as part of the 15-day change package to support the retention of the Phase 2 requirement as described below.

Proposed Amendment that the Board Directed the Executive Officer to Adopt with Modifications:
  • The amendment to include Class 7 drayage trucks. The Board directed that staff's proposal be modified as follows: (a) to accelerate the filter requirement to January 1, 2012 for Class 7 drayage trucks in the South Coast Air Basin, and (b) to require Class 7 drayage trucks statewide to operate with a 2007 or newer emission standard engines by January 1, 2014. These modifications will be covered in the 15-day change package.

Proposed Amendment that the Board Did Not Support:
  • The amendment that would have delayed the current Phase 2 requirement (which mandates that drayage trucks are to operate with 2007+ standard engines by January 1, 2014). The Board found that the requirement should not be deleted from the regulation and is necessary to safeguard emission reductions and health benefits for communities near ports and rail yards and to provide regulatory consistency for truck owners who have already complied with Phase 2 requirements. Therefore, all drayage trucks will still be required to operate with 2007 or newer emission standard engines by January 1, 2014.

The Drayage Truck Regulation is part of ARB's ongoing efforts to reduce emissions and health risks from diesel-fueled engines and improve air quality associated with goods movement. The regulation is designed to remove 85 percent of fine particle emissions from drayage trucks, helping clean the air in port-adjacent communities throughout. To date, 64 percent of drayage trucks have particulate filters, or have been upgraded to the cleanest engines.
