|97-10-1||Continuation of Public Meeting to Consider the Approval and Verification
of California's 1995 Emission Inventory Update
This is a continuation of the November 13, 1997, public meeting for the Board to consider the approval and verification of the California Emission Inventory. At this meeting, the Board will limit discussion to the verification portion of this item.
|97-10-2||Public Hearing to Consider Adoption of Regulatory Amendments to
the California Heavy-Duty Vehicle Inspection Program and Periodic Smoke
The Board will consider a staff recommendation to amend existing regulations governing the Heavy Duty Vehicle Inspection Program (i.e., "roadside" program) and the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (i.e., "fleet" program). These programs are designed to reduce excess emissions from heavy-duty vehicles operating in California (intrastate, interstate and international vehicles). Inspections consist of a snap-acceleration smoke opacity test and an emissions component tampering inspection. Owners of vehicles determined to be in non-compliance are issued citations which require immediate repairs and carry civil penalties. The proposed amendments, if adopted, will incorporate the recently completed SAE J1667 test procedure, establish opacity cutpoints and modify the penalty schedule (most notably the Notice of Violation mechanism).
Open Session to Provide an Opportunity for Members of the Public to Address the Board on Subject Matters Within the Jurisdiction of the Board
Although no formal Board action may be taken, the Board is allowing an opportunity to interested members of the public to address the Board on items of interest that are within the Board’s jurisdiction, but that do not specifically appear on the agenda. Each person will be allowed a maximum of five minutes to ensure that everyone has a chance to speak.
THE AGENDA ITEMS LISTED ABOVE MAY BE CONSIDERED IN A DIFFERENT ORDER AT THE BOARD MEETING.
