SubjectA question for the CARB Board
Considering that CARB is expert in pollution control methods and
chrome platers are experts in chrome plating, how is it possible
for CARB to imagine that a replacement technology for hard
hexavalent chrome plating will emerge by 2039 , but CARB is not
able to imagine an improvement in hex chrome pollution control
methods over the same period? Only a ban will suffice. 

By virtue of this non-emission based proposal, CARB has explicitly
assumed that they will make no improvements in pollution control
methods for the next 16 years. If I was a member of CARB staff
focused on improving pollution control methods, I would find this
very de-motivating. If I was granting budget to CARB to make
improvements in pollution control methods, I would slash the
budget. But, what will the CARB Board do?
