2007 State Strategy for California's
State Implementation Plan (SIP)
for Federal PM2.5 and 8-Hour Ozone Standards

This page last reviewed October 5, 2011

California's 2007 State Implementation Plan (SIP) consists of a comprehensive State Strategy and local attainment plans. The State Strategy is designed to attain federal ozone and fine particulate matter (PM2.5) air quality standards through a combination of technically feasible, cost-effective measures, and new technologies. In combination with local actions, the State Strategy provides the emission reductions necessary to meet the 8-hour ozone standard in nonattainment areas in California. The State Strategy also provides reductions needed for PM2.5 attainment for the two nonattainment areas of South Coast and the San Joaquin Valley.  

In 2009 and 2011, ARB adopted revisions to the 2007 State Strategy. Information regarding the 2007 State Strategy and its subsequent revisions is available below.

2011 Proposed 8-Hour Ozone State Implementation Plans Revisions and Technical Revisions to the PM2.5 State Implementation Plan Transportation Conformity Budgets for the South Coast and San Joaquin Valley Air Basins

On July 21, 2011, ARB approved SIP revisions limited to updating the ARB rulemaking calendar, adjustments to transportation conformity budgets, revisions to reasonable further progress tables and associated reductions for contingency purposes, and an update describing ARB's actions to identify advanced emission control technologies for the South Coast and the San Joaquin Valley.  ARB also approved technical revisions to the PM2.5 SIP transportation conformity budgets for the South Coast and San Joaquin Valley.  


2011 Progress Report on Implementation of PM2.5 State Implementation Plans (SIP) for the South Coast and San Joaquin Valley Air Basins and Proposed SIP Revision

On April 28, 2011, ARB approved a progress report and proposed revisions to the California SIP for submittal to the U.S. EPA. ARB’s proposed PM2.5 SIP revisions are limited to an updated calendar of ARB rulemaking, adjustments to transportation conformity budgets, and revisions to reasonable further progress tables and associated reductions for contingency purposes for the South Coast and the San Joaquin Valley. The proposed Board action also includes approval for submittal to U.S. EPA of revisions to the PM2.5 and ozone SIP for the South Coast Air Basin and Coachella Valley adopted by the South Coast Air Quality Management District on March 4, 2011.

 
2009 Status Report and Revision to the California 2007 State Implementation Plan

On April 23, the Air Resources Board adopted a staff proposal to consider a revision to the SIP reflecting implementation of the 2007 State Strategy since it was adopted. The U.S. EPA requested this revision to aid U.S. EPA’s approval of the SIP. The proposed revision accounts for emission reductions from the regulations adopted in 2007 and 2008, clarifies ARB’s legal commitments in light of U.S. EPA’s approval criteria, and clarifies the discussion of the long-term strategy for identifying future technologies to achieve the last increment of reductions. The proposed revision does not change the emission reductions of oxides of nitrogen, reactive organic gases, oxides of sulfur and direct PM2.5 that the Board committed to achieve by specific years when it adopted the 2007 State Strategy. The proposed revision also includes a commitment for emission reductions in the Sacramento area, since its attainment plan will be considered by the Board at its March 2009 hearing when it considers approval of the SIP for the Sacramento area. The reductions in Sacramento from the statewide measures in the 2007 State Strategy had not been quantified at the time the 2007 State Strategy was adopted and so are not reflected in the 2007 State Strategy. For clarity, staff is now proposing to revise the State Strategy to reflect this commitment. ARB staff has prepared a document entitled, Status Report on the State Strategy for California’s 2007 State Implementation Plan and Proposed Revision to the State Implementation Plan Reflecting Implementation of the 2007 State Strategy (Status Report and Proposed SIP Revisions).

Draft Statewide Air Quality Plan


One of the Air Resources Board’s responsibilities is to propose the State and federal strategy for the SIP to reach the federal standards. The SIP is a comprehensive strategy designed to attain federal air quality standards as quickly as possible through a combination of technologically feasible and cost-effective measures. It outlines ARB staff's assessment of how far adopted regulations will take us towards attainment of federal standards, what new actions could be taken, how the timing of new technology and incentive funds comes into play, and what are the earliest feasible timeframes for meeting standards is likely to be in each region.
